The Sandbox is a free multipurpose space for Greater New Haven artists and activists to practice, learn, record, present, and perform their craft.

Support Free Space for Creatives, the Sandbox


You asked for space and we listened. The Sandbox incubator is free, and accessible to all Arts Council members, (and membership is Free too!) We encourage creatives from the broadest range of disciplines and all walks of life to use the space. Artists of all stages of development are welcome here. We encourage creatives in this space to embrace imperfection. Wherever you are in your process.
