A vibrant and supportive arts and culture scene is key to a thriving community and economy. Bounce’s creative community gives artists, makers, crafters and creative professionals a place to bring their ideas to life.

Studio space/artist co-op

In collaboration with local arts organizations, Bounce will soon offer leased studio space. Stay tuned for more info about this exciting opportunity! We are also home to Avant Garden, a unique space where artists and makers produce and showcase experimental and innovative art. Application for Avant Garden is by invitation only.


Coming in 2019! Part of our first-floor renovation, Bounce’s makerspace will be membership-based, offering workspace and state-of-the-art equipment, such as 3D printers, laser cutters, woodworking tools and sewing equipment, for Akron’s makers, crafters, artists and builders.

Galleries/curated art

We can’t have a creative community without the opportunity and space to show off the amazing work they do. Bounce has gallery space, open to the community and available for individual or group shows. We also work with local arts experts to host curated art throughout the building.
