The Ynot Lot is an outdoor event venue located on the corner of North Avenue and Charles Street in the heart of the Station North Arts & Entertainment District. Through community gatherings and public events, the Ynot Lot encourages daily encounters with art, performance, and design events that are created by a range of local and national cultural organizers. Individuals and groups of any experience level are invited to propose events for the Spring, Summer, and Fall 2017 season. This year, we are encouraging projects that center social justice, intergenerational and cross-cultural collaboration, daring arts and cultural work, and youth-run or youth-oriented events. Our aim is to accommodate as many rigorous events as is possible during the Ynot Lot’s active season.
What does Station North provide?
The Ynot Lot is approximately 6,000 square feet and features a 16’x20’ stage attached to a shipping container, both of which may be used for performance and storage. Aside from the FREE physical space, Station North is able to provide a power generator, temporary storage, promotional support, support in obtaining event permits, and advice along the way at no cost.
