About

OMS is an accessible, adaptable and easily transportable mobile stage venue created from a repurposed 18-foot box truck. The venue was designed and built to support a variety of performers, neighborhoods, business districts, and community events. 

OMS travels throughout Omaha neighborhoods to provide free community-driven entertainment and arts enrichment.

OMS is a direct response to a suite of cultural, social and economic problems that have roots in the pandemic.

The venue is a prototype for a new model of outdoor venue—providing a fun and flexible, but safe and serene, place for communities to re-engage with each other, reactivate public spaces, and reanimate social, creative and economic life in the city.
