Mission

Push/Pull's mission is to:

  1. Promote underground art and comics
  2. Foster community between those creating and viewing art

  4. Innovate the way art is consumed by presenting it in a unique environment and with nontraditional events
  5. Stimulate Diversity by actively seeking out marginalized and under-represented artists

About

Push/Pull is hard to define. It usually comes down to "art space." We're a cooperative business with a nonprofit programming division.

To further our mission to support sustainable careers for artists and to connect artists with the community, we have taken over the programming of Ballard Night Out and Greater Ballard Arts, they're now Bal-Art. Push/Pull is a home for all artists in Ballard to find free support and promotion.

For 2022 we're excited to welcome back in-person events. Bal-Art's Third Thursdays promote art events, artists and venues year-round. We believe that when the arts are supported in the community, everyone benefits.

Push/Pull continues our longstanding tradition of free community programming with our free Teen Art Program. We now meet three times a week, thanks to the support of donations by people in the community like you. We have 8 weeks of summer programming planned and will be back with at least 3 days of meetings for the 2022-23 school year. Learn more on our website!

Push/Pull is fiscally sponsored by Shunpike, a tax-exempt organization. Shunpike is the 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that provides independent arts groups in Washington State with the services, resources, and opportunities they need to forge their own paths to sustainable success.
