3S Artspace is a nonprofit arts organization that endeavors to ignite and change the way we experience art, music, and food. We invite unbounded risk taking in both the creation of art and in the way we experience it.
3S is a 501c3 alternative arts space that combines the only midsize, flexible performance space of its kind in the area, a large, non-commercial gallery with affordable artist studios above, and an affordable and approachable restaurant serving as a local hub, ideal as a gathering place for patrons and locals alike.
3S is dedicated to presenting and supporting bold, emerging art and entertainment and cultivating an informal space for the exchange of ideas and creativity. 3S has been years in the making, years of careful planning, collaboration and programming within our community.
Founded in 2009, the idea sprang from the need to provide space for the kind of experiences that shape us all. We believe our values define us, and we value culture. Culture is a catalyst. It grows an economy. It fuels potential.
Our permanent home at 319 Vaughan Street in downtown Portsmouth, NH is a place for curious minds of all ages and backgrounds to gather, explore, cultivate new perspectives and ideas and fall in love with the experiences of eating, seeing, hearing and making, all under one roof.
