Eastmorland Community Center
Developing space and spirit for life in the Eastmorland Neighborhood
The Eastmorland Community Center was founded on a vision of bringing people together for life-giving work. Our mission is to create space for the collaborative life of the neighborhood. We value the arts, education, and social justice work for what it brings to the lives of the residents of Eastmorland and our school community. We strive to support groups and programs engaged in valuable life-affirming work and to be a gathering place for people to come together in community. We value bringing people into the life of the building as a whole so that we build community as we create a hub for the amazing things happening in the Eastmorland Neighborhood.

StageQ is a resident of the Bartell Community Theatre where we produce 3-5 productions annually. We serve as a home for queer artists to tell their stories on stage and allow queer audiences the ability to see themselves and their lives represented on stage.
