Linkages Co-Presentation Program

 

All self-producing artists, whose work fits within Links Hall’s mission, are welcome to present their work at Links Hall through our Linkages Program. Linkages are co-presentations by the artist and Links Hall.

 

The rates below are only for Studio A – the white box. Studio B – the black box – is occasionally available through the Linkages program only on a case-by-case basis. Artists must demonstrate a track record of successfully producing in Studio A before Links will partner with them in Studio B.

Linkages Performance Rental Rates

Links Hall’s rates are significantly subsided because we consider each “rental” a co-presentation between Links Hall and the producing artist or company. You book your show by making a deposit and signing a contracting. Deposits start as low as $50 for a one nighter and go up to $500 for a two week run – the remaining balance of the Linkage package can be paid through splitting ticket sales. Deposits can be paid up front, through a payment plan, or through a crowd funding platform/Facebook campaign. All Linkage artists participate in a contract, audience development and production orientation with Links Hall staff prior to their performances.

CRITERIA FOR PARTICIPATION IN LINKAGES:

Please make sure your project aligns with Links Hall’s Mission. Only projects that fit within our mission will be considered. Links Hall is not available for event rentals or anything outside of our mission.

If you are an artist producing a music concert, you are not eligible for the Linkages program.

To inquire about the Linkages program please APPLY ONLINE and send any questions to Links Hall’s Director of Linkage Partnerships Felicia Holman at 773.281.0824 or Felicia@linkshall.org.

 

Box office services:

Links Hall will provide a house manager to run the Box Office/Will Call, starting 30 minutes prior to showtime. Advance ticket sales are only available online, through Links Hall’s Eventbrite.com account.

Marketing support:

You will have an Audience Development orientation with Links Hall’s Director of Linkage Partnerships Felicia Holman to help you develop your marketing plan, which you are responsible for executing. You will be provided with a press release template and access to our master press list. Links Hall will handle your ticketing, list your event on our website, include your show in our calendar listings release, and include your performances in our e-blasts and on Facebook.

Links Hall’s support augments but does not and cannot replace, your own audience development efforts. You will be provided with access to your ticket buyers’ information to continue your efforts to develop a following for your work beyond your performances here.
