The Heartbeat of The Shelter


This Page Is For Historical Purposes

The heartbeat of The Shelter is our weekly Shelter Sunday workshop, where writers, directors, and actors challenge themselves to refine their respective crafts through hard work, creative exercise, experimentation and artistic discourse.

What is Shelter Sunday? It’s a place for you, Artist. Actors, writers, and directors: bring your art. You’ve got 20 minutes: 10 minutes for work, and 10 minutes for feedback (optional). Come with an intention. Don’t be afraid to learn forward, take chances, fall on your face, and get back up again.

Shelter Sunday operates with an open-door policy: we welcome any artist who would like to attend. No need to RSVP. If you’re bringing work, show up early and get your name on the sign-up sheet (first come, first serve). Shelter Sunday is absolutely free. We do encourage donations to help cover the cost of the space, but we understand that being an artist is tough (we’re all artists). We believe that you are more important that your money, and we believe that artists and community come first.


We meet Sundays starting at 6:30pm. Join us at T. Schreiber Studio, located at 151 W 26th Street on the 10th floor.


Attendance to Shelter Sunday is free. Donations accepted to cover cost of room rental ($10 suggestion).
