10degrees is an intimate art + event venue in the heart of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The owner, KT Niehoff, is an entrepreneurial generative artist, performer and producer working in the field of multi-disciplinary, new performance. She opened the space – which she designed and built – in 2011.
10 degrees supports the philanthropic artistic mission of the space through private event rentals. The synergy between event rentals and artist residencies creates a financially stable art center in one of Seattle’s most competitive real estate markets.
As an arts space, 10 degrees provides periodic residencies for performance artists. Past and current artists include Jody Kuehner, Jessica Jobaris, Heather Kravas, Salt Horse, Shannon Stewart, Alia Swersky, Maya Soto and Peggy Piacenza. 10 degrees also regularly partners with Velocity Dance Center and has hosted events for The Project Room.
As an event space, 10 degrees hosts fabulous cocktail parties, gorgeous sit-down suppers, small weddings, corporate meetings, private fundraisers, birthday parties, special performances, loving anniversaries, and festive holiday functions.
“With 10d I wanted to re-imagine the relationship between artists and their often pressurized relationship to rehearsal space. When I engage with an artist in residence I ask we dispel with proposals, project descriptions, tightly scheduled timelines and deadlines. I want the artists working with 10d to have space in both physical and metaphorical sense.”
