Ellensburg is filled with talent – talented actors, musicians, singers, dancers of all ages who seek to perform before an attentive audience. Yet they struggle to find space to create and share their talents. Performance space at area schools and Central Washington University (CWU) is overcommitted and costly. While the strong support of the arts by CWU and area schools is present, the primary constituency of both institutions is NOT the local arts community. This leads to lack of dedicated space for rehearsal, performances on a limited budget, maker space, and spaces for collaboration that fall outside of school-based programs. Many creative ideas and projects over the years fail to bear fruit due to the lack of a space.
CenterFuse is seeking a professional services consulting to conduct a feasibility study to identify and assess production and performance space needs and availability.
