The Tank provides free performance space and a suite of other benefits for emerging and experimental artists pursuing new ideas and forms of expression. We present work across seven disciplines: theater, dance, comedy, film, music, storytelling, and public affairs. The space is free for our artists, but it's not free for us! Help us keep presenting the work of over 1,000 artists in over 400 performances this year.
All new and increased donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous challenge grant. If you haven't given to us before, now is the time to hop on board, and if you have, know that your donation will take us twice as far!
