Sanctuary

Safety. Acceptance. Fellowship. Expression. Resources 

 

Our STory

Sanctuary Performing Arts was founded in 2020 in the midst of a turning point year as a result of lacking safe spaces throughout the area. Sanctuary Performing arts is committed to creating a S.A.F.E.R.  (Safety Acceptance Fellowship Expression Resources)  space for all comminutes with our main focus being members of minority communities and the arts. Create an account and sign in today to access our resource center! 

Our founder chose this unique venue that once served as a church. This space was perfect for our mission as its original creation acts perfectly as a performance venue theatre and sober space during our Café operations. S.P.A does NOT possess an alcohol  or beer license  and plans to maintain that status outside of private or special events as we grow. We believe in offering a variety of safe environments for every community member. 

The founding members of S.P.A are all members of the trans community and are committed to including everyone from all walks of life. Though our building holds memories and images of its religious past, Sanctuary Performing Arts is not affiliated with any religious sect or denomination and proudly invites tolerant members of any religion through our doors. Sanctuary  relies on a diverse Board of Directors including trans and allied members to make major decisions

Our venue space hosts regular performing arts shows including performance art, poetry, fire arts and more! We are always looking for new art! 

We host bi weekly support groups including the Trans Experience Support Group and Parents of LGBTQIA+ Support Group. 

Come check out our beautiful gardens and plant life that adorn both inside and outside of our one of kind center. 

The Sanctuary is also available for private parties, weddings, meetings, community needs, and various other uses.

We are weeks away from opening our sober day space ,Sanctuary Café, in our East wing. The café will feature a daily affordable and healthy local menu and hand crafted coffees, Boba teas, and your coffee shop favorites.  Contact us to view pricing and availability. Catering and private events available.
