Powerhouse Arts (PHA) is a not-for-profit organization committed to creative expression. Housed in a purpose-built facility in Brooklyn, the organization hosts an extended network of art and fabrication professionals and educators who work together to co-create and share artistic practices vital to the wellbeing of artists and the communities to which they belong.
Designed as a hub for creativity and community, PHA includes multiple venue spaces of different sizes and settings for large scale events, public programs, and community gatherings, and operates a Private Event Rentals program that directly supports the creative mission of the organization. Each space was designed with a range of production needs in mind, resulting in a series of inviting spaces that collectively reimagine the building’s rich history.
