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


You asked for space, and we listened. The Sandbox incubator is free, and accessible to all members. 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.
