Current Health Guidelines
UPDATED MAY 1, 2023:
18th & Union is committed to carefully and proactively following all public health and common sense guidelines. We’ve made improvements to the physical venue, acquired equipment to support live streaming over the internet, and set up health and safety protocols for artists, audience members and others who will access the space.
18th & Union is an intimate venue, and performance is a unique venture. In order to ensure performer, staff, and guest safety, please note the following guidelines for joining us in-person at 18th & Union:
- Masks are encouraged while not eating or drinking.
- Symptom- and exposure-free. Please ensure your full group is free of cold, flu, COVID or other contagious symptoms on the day of the show, and that no one is in an observation or quarantine period due to a confirmed case of or exposure to a contagious condition.
- All venue staff and performers are following these same guidelines.
- We have a ventilation system that transfers the air in the performance space several times every hour.
If you purchase an in-person ticket, and change your mind for any reason, we will exchange your tickets for the Stream.
Streaming, Live and On-Demand
Most of our shows are offered to stream audiences as well as in-person attendees. In this way, we hope to be able to accommodate multiple preferences for viewing, and to pivot quickly if public health recommendations change without warning.
As always at 18th & Union, tickets are offered on a sliding scale to accommodate different budgets while also valuing the work of our partner artists.
All this is possible thanks to generous support from many who helped us get to this point. Special thanks to: Our understanding landlords; 4Culture; ArtsFund; Raynier Foundation; Seattle Office of Arts and Culture; alongside many vital individual donors. These financial resources were critical in helping 18th & Union survive the shutdown and add the improvements we needed to reopen.
