Events are a way to share your creative work with a wider audience. 

 

Thank you for considering hiring our venue. All revenue goes to helping creative practitioners at XCHC develop their work and grow into their creative selves. 

We've been open since August 2014 and have held over 200 events* in our venue. We keep our rates affordable by encouraging hosts to curate and set-up their event however they see fit and putting things back how they found them after their event. Thank you for your support!

Come to our free weekly creative nights
or
Host your own!

XCHC Friday is a weekly event where we give the venue away to serve a creative event or community purpose. We also staff the bar which encourages people to come out and show support. 

Our exhibitors can have their launch at no charge and partner with a performance, music, theatre, storytelling, magic show, poetry/open-mic, or one of the many other events we've had.

Through this, they can get much needed feedback, build an audience, confidence, further develop their work, and see 2 differing creative communities come together for a fun night; giving people interested in the creative industries a place to gather and meet one another.

(July-December 2016 program)

Interested in attending?
All events are free to host and free to attend; but we suggest giving a koha to show support for emerging talent.
