It’s been a fantastic run, thanks for all the support. Loft 3a, in it’s previous capacity, is no more. Thanks again, and best wishes to all!
Loft 3a is run by the crazy talented folks that live and have lived here.
☞ We use our 3000 square foot loft to host emerging and experimental creative endeavors in the form of concerts, gallery shows, fundraisers, temporary cafes, film screenings, workshops, and rehearsals.
☞ Loft 3a does not intend, in it's current capacity, to host or promote private parties not directly associated with current or former members of the space.
☞ We like to partner with visiting artists, small collectives, and other not-yet-institutionalized entities to serve as a physical platform in which to manifest their inspirations and create happenings.
☞ We work with projects that are underground, emerging, and/or transformative. Feel free to contact us with an idea.
