Wild Goose Creative Closes SoHud Space
Wild Goose Creative has announced that they will no longer be occupying their founding space at 2491 Summit St. due to COVID-19. However, their planned expansion to Franklinton will continue.
Near the end of 2019, Wild Goose Creative’s board and community came together to raise funds to support their expansion to a newly-renovated space in Franklinton at 188 McDowell St. At the time, Wild Goose Creative was routinely booked and had to turn away multiple events each week.
Wild Goose says the decision to close the SoHud space will allow them to focus on their future serving the Columbus creative community in Franklinton.
“We discovered the Summit Street space in the summer of 2008, close to where we all lived, and signed a lease that September. We were excited to bring art to a growing neighborhood, to broaden the opportunities geographically for artists,” said Co-Founders Nick and Beth Dekker in a statement. “We’re so proud of what we made in that space, and how its walls rang for over a decade with music, laughter, conversation, and community.”
The Franklinton space will allow Wild Goose Creative to bring more improv, theater, music, art, educational opportunities and community outreach to the city they’ve been serving for over a decade.
“We’re excited for this new era of Wild Goose, as it finishes its run at Summit Street and takes on new life in Franklinton. We believe Wild Goose will play an important role in this growing and thriving arts district,” said the Dekkers.
As their new space is being worked on, Wild Goose Creative will have a temporary location in the Bridge Gallery at 400 W. Rich St.
