One of our most vital services, the SubletSeries@HERE supports 150 guest independent artists and groups—such as New Georges, Vampire Cowboys, and ViBe Theater Experience (an educational arts group for underserved urban teen girls)—and their audiences each season. As Ben Brantley of The New York Times states, "HERE's Sublet Series allows artists to develop and perform work, at a discount."

This creative curated rental program has allowed many upstart companies and emerging artists to realize their full artistic vision on a small budget. The program provides subsidized performance and rehearsal space, technical assistance, and administrative support, including a fully staffed box office. SubletSeries@HERE artists can also access equipment that is not typically available in venues our size such as video projectors, wireless microphones, color scrollers—all for free or at subsidized rates. We accept applications from artists all over the world for the opportunity to show work for a minimum of 3 weeks.

Applications to our year-round Sublet Series are accepted on a rolling basis.
