Warehouse Theatre Windhoek opened its doors in 1989 and since then has been at the centre of Namibia's art scene, providing a home and platform for local artists, and hosting numerous noteworthy international artists.
The core of Warehouse Theatre's purpose has always been to make performance art in Namibia easily accessible to the public, whilst giving artists a chance to grow their audiences and make a living from doing the work they love.
Being at the centre of Namibia's many diverse communities, the theatre has also not shed away from accommodating and hosting community conscious projects such as meditation sessions, community yoga classes and artist workshops.
As a completely independent entity with no external financial support, Warehouse Theatre has decided to create a CrowdFunding campaign to tackle the financial woes we currently face as we attempt to avoid closure during this harsh economic climate, which has also seen a decline in sponsorship and dwindling audience figures.
The funds will go towards repaying bank overdrafts and supplier debt, renovations, purchase of lighting equipment and computers, working capital and of course the hosting of shows and continual support of local arts and culture.
