OuterSpace seeks to cultivate community by providingĀ artists with affordable, easy-to-use space for rehearsals, workshops, classes, and informal performances, and curate ongoing performances and classes. OuterSpace is managed by The Space Movement Project (TSMP) and located in the heart of Wicker Park, Chicago. The space consists of two 1400-square-foot spaces, featuring hardwood floors, central air/heat, natural light, and full kitchens. More about Outerspace Features
