186 Carpenter is a storefront and office space that presents arts programming and current events.

We opened in February 2011. (This blog began in March 2012 and back-documentation of shows will be added, um, soon.)

Contact us and/or to be added to our email list, write to at carpenter186 [at] gmail [dot] com.

See photos of some past events here.

If you believe that what you do fits into our space’s aesthetic and politics and you are interested in sharing your work here, please send a casual email to carpenter186 [at] gmail [dot] com describing your work/project with links to some kind of documentation – images, audio files, video clips etc – and why you want to do it here.

We promise to look at what you send and will do our best to reply to your email. We appreciate your interest in the space and look forward to checking out your music/art/ideas!
