Le Mondo believes that equity and empowerment start with ownership. Based in downtown Baltimore, we are an artist-led community development project transforming three vacant buildings into a permanently affordable performing arts hub for artists to make and present new, risk-taking work.

A healthy, thriving cultural sector begins with stable, accessible space for creatives to connect with each other, develop risk-taking work, and present this work to larger audiences. We are a group of artists and community leaders who are creating that in Baltimore. By artists for artists, we are revitalizing three decades-vacant buildings in downtown Baltimore into artist-run performance venues, studio spaces, affordable live-work space, a bar, and café. Since 2014, we have acquired buildings; raised over $1.5M toward capital improvements; and opened our first building to the public in 2019 as a multi-use arts venue, bar, and studio space.
