We center the voices of Women, Indigenous, Immigrant, Queer, Black, and Brown artists on our stages, and we invite audiences to acknowledge and celebrate the myriad roots of American culture.
be a part of the solution:
Though we are committed to the intimacy of the WEAVE experience, selling out our small venue does not cover our costs and does not guarantee our future.
In recent times we have experienced the need for community during crisis. We understand the importance of creating spaces that are accessible and welcoming to all.

WEAVE is crucial...

WEAVE has earned...
a stellar reputation for attracting phenomenal talent and our sold-out shows testify to our relevance in this community.
