About Us

Open Space for Arts & Community is an arts venue unlike any other. Inspired by the creative, compassionate and “can do” spirit of Vashon, we co-create extraordinary artistic and community building experiences that enrich and inspire all involved.

Open Space hosts a vast array of artistic and community-centered experiences. Musicians ranging from Makana to Macklemore, from the Seattle Rock Orchestra to the Shook Twins rock our world-class sound system and fill our Grand Hall with their artistry. Our Burlesco Notturno series brings the most renowned burlesque and varieté performers in the country to enchant Vashon. The finest aerial artists in the world mesmerize audiences at Open Air. Club O monthly dance nights are filled with an all-ages crowd of teens, families, adults and even elders enjoying Vashon’s biggest dance floor. Kinetic Art Sculptures have graced our indoor space and inspired an
outdoor putt-putt golf installation.

While the arts are at our core, Open Space fills even larger needs. Over $2M dollars has been raised under our roof for Island organizations. Open Space has been the proud host of fundraisers for VIPP, Vashon Allied Arts, Vashon PTSA, Harbor School, Vashon Community Care Foundation, Vashon-Maury Coop Preschool, Vashon Food Bank, Vashon Wilderness Society, Backbone Campaign, Cedarsong Preschool, Friends of Pt. Robinson, The DoVE Project, Voice of Vashon and more.
