Artists, collaborative partnerships and companies perform at Velocity under two different programs:

Access Velocity // Velocity’s subsidized Theater Rental Program

Velocity Presents // Consisting of Velocity’s multiple annual presenting programs

Access Velocity

Access Velocity is Velocity’s initiative to support independently produced performances by artists in our flexible Founders Theater. We offer three affordable rental packages that respond to artists’ different performance needs and offer theater rental support systems that reflect the highest national standards.

Velocity provides theater space, production assistance, house management, marketing consultation and necessary services to support independent artists and groups to self-produce their engagements.

Velocity Presents

As the presenter, Velocity provides unduplicated, immersive performance experience for local, national and international artists. Velocity covers marketing and press expenses, provides creative consultation and support, and pays an agreed-upon performance fee to artists.

Velocity Presents programs are curated by Velocity’s Executive/Artistic Director alongside panels of independent artists and community members. For program applications and deadlines click here.
