SPACE FOR HIRE
The intention for The Engine Room is to gather people together to express themselves freely and authentically, and to celebrate that expression. It is a place to cultivate and release kinetic energies and this room is designed to inspire motion. It is mostly used for group workshops, but is also used for art exhibitions, events, and fundraisers and anything that requires low levels of light and soundproofing like movie screenings and theatre shows.
