THE STORY:

LE MONDO wrote -

In 2013, a group of Baltimore artist-organizers came together to address the growing issues of safe, affordable art space and to create a way to collectively empower each other and share resources. The result of those conversations was Le Mondo.

Now in 2017, there is an increasing need to build and preserve havens of creativity and safe communal spaces. In Baltimore and across the country, these already-precarious havens are being threatened, shut down, and displaced. Le Mondo is leading a charge against these developments by creating a permanent artist-owned stake in downtown Baltimore for experimental art, alternative politics, and the development of new, radical ideas.

We’ve built the dream of an artist-owned-and-driven performing arts complex from the ground up with your help from the beginning. Now, we are almost ready to open MONDO, our first building housing a mid-sized performing arts venue, neighborhood bar, and affordable artist studio spaces on Howard Street in Baltimore.

We are raising $60,000 for MONDO to open its doors to the public and host programming seven nights a week this Spring 2017.

WHAT WE WILL DO
MONDO, our first building to open, will be a 350-person multi-use performance venue located at 404/406 N. Howard St. In addition to a sizable and flexible performance space, it will include a neighborhood bar, artist studios, office space, and a commercial retail space. Our mission is to keep this venue artist-oriented and affordable. MONDO will bring a dense and active space to the 400 block of N. Howard St. and an accessible and much-needed mid-size performance venue addition to Baltimore.

Getting MONDO open will not only provide these valuable additions to Baltimore’s art scene, it will be the jumping-off point for a groundbreaking performing arts complex driven by artists in Baltimore. It will propel the fundraising and buildout of our adjacent two buildings, which will include a black box theatre, affordable live/work apartments, workshop facilities, dance/rehearsal space, classroom space, and a restaurant. Opening our first venue, MONDO will help catapult these developments for the future.
