"...used this space for four weeks straight and never once had a bad experience. It was perfect for exactly what we needed and the performers had a wonderful time getting to practice there. We won't have another show for awhile, but will definitely come back to use this space..."

"...BLNKeast was a perfect space for my Sound Bath performance. The small gallery will easily fit 12 yoga mats comfortably. I ended up having more that 12 attendees and Eva quickly helped me move over to the larger showroom space to accommodate my needs in exchange for a tad bit..."

headshot mini-session

I'm a local photographer, and I'm interested in checking out your space if possible. I'm planning a headshot mini-session that I'm considering expanding to a community event with some acoustic performances and a few small vendors. The date will either be the 25th, in the afternoon, or on the 27th, beginning at 5:30 PM. It will last between two and three hours. I think your space might work for me, but I’d love to come check it out in person, to look at things like location of outlets, general lighting, etc. I'll be in your area on Saturday late afternoon/early evening. Would it be possible to come take a look sometime between 4 PM and 7 PM? Thanks so much!

filming a music video

I wanted to look into filming a music video at this location. First off, is the space available at the above date and time frame, the 22nd, 12pm - 5pm? And secondly, in the space, do you have a ladder that can reach the ceiling if I was looking to mount two lights to the wooden rafters to shine down as spotlights on the performers? I look forward to hearing back from you!

spoken word video shoot

I'm obsessed with your space! I will be shooting a 2 minute spoken word piece and I doubt we will even need the full 3 hours. I'll have a super small crew (1 talent, 1 camera guy, and 1 sound guy) and we won't be bringing any props or anything like that. We're just looking to shoot in front of large glass windows.

dance music video shoot

I'm hoping to film a very short scene ("dance rehearsal" scene) in a video project I'm working on (I'm a drag performer). Do you perhaps have availability in your space this Sunday? The shoot will be very low-impact: four people, handheld camera, easy-peasy
