Where we create
Since Gum-Dip's focus is community-based, most performances are site-specific. We attempt to make shows accessible and inclusive to many different populations.
760 Elma St, Akron, OH 44310
We regularly develop, rehearse, and perform at the Exchange House. We facilitate workshops, trainings, rehearsals, and performances from within this cultural hub / international hostel of Akron. It's also the perfect space for our intimate story circles for My North Hill. The Exchange House is a public space supporting, empowering, and culturally enriching the community.
The Center for Art, Music, and Performance
118 West Market St (second floor), Akron, OH 44303
Our main office and studio space is at The Center. Located along the neighborhood line of downtown and West Hill, The Center re-opens (previously known as ACAMP) as a multi-use, interdisciplinary venue available to artists, creatives, and “do-ers” for performances, events, workshops, classes, release parties, art shows, etc. As artists of multiple disciplines and associations, we believe in building a space that is not only conducive to personal and creative growth, but also inclusive and accessible to all.
Most of our performances are site-specific whether it's a scene featured in a festival or a performance in a park. We want community-based theatre to be as accessible and random as possible.
Some events we've performed for include BCAA Annual Festival, Open Streets Akron, Envision Akron, Global Village Festival, Ingenuity Fest in Cleveland, Summit StageFest, VIBE Collective, Reimagining the Civic Commons Conference, Stark County's English as Second Language Teachers, Akron Art Museum, and the Electric Pressure Cooker.
