Tour

A free, live performing arts tour of Omaha’s green spaces

Beginning in Spring 2022, Omaha Mobile Stage will operate as a mobile, public venue for performing artists of all ages.

By working in partnership with a diverse range of public space managers, property types, local performers and arts nonprofits, our programming will respond to the local heritage, culture and tastes of Omaha’s unique neighborhoods. 

Arts and culture act as “civic glue” when they animate gatherings across generational, cultural and economic lines. Within our collaborative framework, the arts play a critical role in curating and strengthening neighborhood identity. Through performance, Omaha Mobile Stage will bring people together in a neutral, safe space that can serve as a springboard for further community and economic development.

Our 2022 Performance Tour artists and schedule will be announced in spring of 2022. Sign up for email updates or follow us on Instagram to stay informed.

Tour Venues

Omaha Mobile Stage is committed to rediscovering and building upon Omaha’s unique legacy of using mobile performing arts to bring communities together. 

Our 2022 Performance Tour public venue collaborators were invited to join our first tour. These organizations are rooted in a distinct and revitalizing place. They are also committed to reflecting and supporting the local diversity and values of both their place-based audience and the cultural communities they are fostering through their existing or new programming.

Each venue collaborator has an active role in shaping our designbuild process; hosting the Omaha Mobile Stage during our 2022 Performance Tour; and adapting a unique, local placemaking approach for its tour dates to align with our overall creative placemaking goals.

Tour dates and performers will be announced after phase one is complete.

We’re excited to announce our 2022 Tour Venue Partners!
