The Building

Jack Straw Cultural Center is the Northwest’s only non-profit multidisciplinary audio arts center. A community-based resource since 1962, we provide a production facility that is unlike any other in the region for local artists who work creatively with sound. Jack Straw focuses on annual artist residencies through our Artist Support Program, our Writers Program, and our Gallery Residency Program; art and technology education for all ages; arts heritage partnerships; and radio production. Our full-service recording studio is also available for a range of arts projects.

The Jack Straw New Media Gallery has supported and exhibited

artists working with visual and installation art, with an emphasis on sound, since 1999. The New Media Gallery exhibits artists’ work through an open call process. As one of a handful of exclusively sound art spaces in the world, it has
attracted applicants nationally and internationally, however Jack Straw has a commitment to local artists.

We rent office space on the 2nd and 3rd floors of our building to arts organizations, creative individuals, and small businesses. Among our current residents are Floating Bridge Press, Sound Theatre Company, Entre Rios Books, KBFG FM, and UW research groups.
