Read what other organizations and media outlets are saying about Scalehouse.
Scalehouse is committed to providing programming that’s accessible yet provocative, extraordinary yet inclusive, and always with an eye toward a better future — this starts with supporting artists and creative workers and finding ways for all communities to have equitable access to the arts. Race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability and economic disparities have excluded many from participating in arts and cultural events, and due to impacts of COVID-19, many in our community are living with financial hardships right now and communities of color are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. Scalehouse is committed to breaking down these barriers to enhance cultural equity, removing financial barriers and continuing to amplify voices that have been historically underrepresented.
We are sustained by Scalehouse Members—the artists, creative professionals, and supporters who make a difference in our world and our evolving city. We are also truly grateful for the enthusiasm, trust, and financial contributions of our Founding Members. Thank you.

Scalehouse shapes our shared future through creativity, collaboration, and conversation.
We believe that our future presents complex challenges and opportunities, not just benefiting from creativity but requiring it. Throughout the year, we convene diverse thinkers for in-depth discussion, artistic expression, and hands-on collaboration. Scalehouse convenes diverse thinkers and promote collaborations through a multidisciplinary and contemporary, encompassing visual and performing arts, architecture and design, film and storytelling, conceptual art and activism. From exhibitions to talks to the annual Bend Design conference, our programs catalyze a creative synthesis that’s impossible in isolation.
Scalehouse is for artists, creative thinkers, civic and business leaders, scientists and engineers, teachers and students, concerned citizens—anyone who feels a responsibility to help shape the future through creativity. We are committed to programming that’s accessible yet provocative, extraordinary yet inclusive, and always with an eye toward a better future for all of us.
Scalehouse is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our programming is supported by sponsors, grants, and membership fees and we are governed by our Board of Directors and aided by committed volunteers.
