RAISE THE BIG TOP!! $50,000 in 30 days


For years Homer has been clamoring for a medium sized performance and community meeting space. HCOA is committed to building a space that will accommodate approximately 170+ audience members for intimate performances, a gathering space for community events and meetings, and open space for movement classes of all genres. Our initial estimate for Phase 2 of the project is $185,000. We have raised $125,000 through grants, member donations, and HCOA's mortgage refinance.

The 50 foot yurt, just shy of 2000 square feet, will comfortably hold 200 people. With a dance friendly floor, natural gas heat, internal support for aerial hanging points, and performance ready lights and sound, the yurt will serve as the perfect structure for a wide variety of classes, workshops, and events. Adjacent storage will house tables, chairs, and equipment so the space can be tailored to user needs. A partial wrap around porch will include ADA accessible porta potties until Phase 3 has been completed.
