Elevate your event
The Shed is one of New York’s signature flexible spaces with the ability to make any event extraordinary. Unburdened by fixed seats, narrow corridors, or the constraint of a single entrance, The Shed welcomes events of all kinds, ranging from live performances and virtual engagements to fashion shows, symposiums, and film premieres.
While maintaining full compliance with CDC, the NYC Department of Health, New York State, and national occupational health and safety guidance, The Shed’s events team is ready to help you realize your next event!
The Shed is a new cultural institution of and for the 21st century. We produce and welcome innovative art and ideas, across all forms of creativity, to build a shared understanding of our rapidly changing world and a more equitable society. We seek opportunities to collaborate with cultural peers and community organizations, work with like-minded partners, and provide unique spaces for private events both virtually and in-person.
