The Contemporary

The Arts Campus at Willits is currently fundraising to construct a permanent home that will be an incubator for arts, technology, and culture. The facility, called the Contemporary, is a reimagining of the Temporary as a 21st-century performance space. To support the Contemporary performance space, the building will include a Community Room, a highly activated lobby/work space, an outdoor amphitheater, a catering/teaching kitchen, production infrastructure, as well as offices and necessary support spaces. The building and additional phases will be constructed in Willits on the parcel where TACAW holds a 99-year lease.

The Contemporary will be a high impact, future-ready platform and incubator for performing arts, for culture, for community.  Highlights include:

  • 240 seats for concerts and lectures, 180 for cabaret, 160 for banquets and 400 standing guests
  • A lobby/living room/cafe will be an active, informal workspace as well as serving as our lobby/bar for scheduled events
  • Catering/teaching kitchen
  • Dedicated community/rehearsal room
  • A covered outdoor terrace
  • Production infrastructure and full office suite
  • Expansive lawn and outdoor area
  • Phased construction that suits our current needs, maintains flexibility and accommodates our long-term opportunities
