From 2014-2017 play held brick and mortar space in the DTLA Arts District. We are still part of a big push to change the way DIY performance venue permitting is treated in the city of LA and hope to be able to open a new venue in the coming years. We are proud of our time as an incubator space and are looking for collaborators to take things to the next level.

we're on a mission to play
play collaborative arts fosters community in both the performing and healing arts through a commitment to open collaboration, mindfulness and environmental sustainability.
As a driving force in DTLA’s artistic resurgence, play holds space for highly energized, thought-provoking, experience based work. From interactive theatre and immersive installation to experimental multi-disciplinary art events, our programming encourages visitors to connect and contribute to the energy in the room-becoming collaborators themselves.
By creating an environment where healing tools are accessible, play empowers collaborators to incorporate fearlessness and intentional living into their every day lives. Through yoga, meditation, and intuitive creativity, play inspires presence, self-development and a realistic-utopian vision of the future. play collaborative arts believes that anything can be realized when people are given the time and space to play together.
