Raw Space is a performing arts venue and meeting space (or “commons”) in historic downtown Ellensburg, Washington, less than 2 hours from Seattle on I-90, near the famous Gorge Amphitheatre and the Suncadia and SageCliff resort venues.
Raw Space is part of the emerging Elmira Arts Project (EAP), which will be housed in the 1889 Elmira Hotel and the adjacent Old Post Office. EAP will be an “arts magnet” for Ellensburg and the Pacific Northwest. Adjacent to Raw Space, you will find Bertine’s coffee shop (coming soon) serving beer & wine in the evenings.
Raw Space provides a venue for arts, education and collaboration to enhance and enliven the Ellensburg community and the Pacific Northwest. We welcome a diversity of music, visual arts, lectures and other events to Raw Space.
