makers space experience

Dancers / Choreographers! Do you need SPACE to work on your ideas?

Keshet Dance and Center for the Arts is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

While Keshet has been in existence since 1996, we opened the Keshet Center for the Arts in 2013, and created the Keshet Ideas and Innovation Community (KIIC) to support arts entrepreneurs through business classes, office incubator space, a fellowship for contemporary dance, and multiple “makers space” opportunities.

The focus of the Keshet Makers Space is simply to provide choreographers with space to develop their craft, at whatever stage that might be — newly germinating ideas and/or final development of full productions.

Keshet Makers Space Experience

The Keshet Makers Space Experience (MSE) is a block of time in which a cohort of choreographers/dancemakers have access to space to develop their craft and their products  — assisting in the process of bringing art to market.

Keshet provides physical space for the “making” at the Keshet Center for the Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The Keshet Center for the Arts has 4 studios and a 220-seat black box theater in which visiting artists can use the space for in exchange for providing a few master classes during their time at Keshet. These classes are open to the community, and when Makers are visiting during a designated cohort period, the classes are also intended for Makers Space participants to learn from each other and about one others work.

The Keshet Makers Space Experience does not cover travel/housing costs, but we provide free access to space, free classes during your visit, lots of sunshine and oodles of love. So if you or someone you know might benefit from this type of space and experience and would like to come hang in New Mexico, please fill out a MSE Application Form to start the process.
