To assist community cultural groups with the affordability of venues, the Boulder Arts Commission and eTown are offering up to 12 days per calendar year of fee-waivered space at eTown Hall.

In addition to presenting the nationally recognized radio broadcast and podcast, eTown operates eTown Hall, a performing arts center at 1535 Spruce St. in Boulder.

“While costs have gone up since the pandemic, eTown recognizes the need for access to affordable spaces for both performing and rehearsing in Boulder," said eTown founder, Nick Forster. "With that in mind, eTown is proud to support our thriving arts community.”

Boulder-based cultural organizations are eligible for one day of fee waiver annually. Program guidelines, eligibility, and applications can be found at the Boulder Office of Arts and Culture webpage. More information about eTown can be found on their website, or by phone at 303-443-8696.

The award is for facility rent only; the applicant is responsible for direct labor costs for technical staff, ushers, security personnel, etc. The Boulder Arts Commission offers additional support to help with these costs by application to the Boulder Arts Commission’s Venue and Online Event Affordability Fund, subject to availability of the grants.
