Hosting offers rich experiences, but it comes with a certain level of commitment. Here are some ways you can foster a responsible partnership. *


What can I do to make my space safe for audiences?

Emergency Procedures

Contact Info:

Indicate local emergency numbers and the nearest hospital. Provide a clear emergency contact number for yourself, as well as backup, for easy reference. Also make clear how you should be contacted if the act has questions or issues arise.


Make a first aid kit easily available.

Fire Prevention:

Ensure you have a functioning smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector, and that your property meets government safety guidelines for your area (e.g., International Building Code). Ensure you provide a functioning fire extinguisher and complete required maintenance.


Ensure you have a clearly marked fire escape route, and post a map as per local laws.

Minimise Hazards


Make sure you are aware of and comply with applicable federal, state, and local laws.


Establish safe occupancy limits – your local government may have guidelines.


Go through your venue to identify any areas where performers and audiences might trip or fall and either remove the hazard or mark clearly. Fix any exposed wires. Ensure stairs are safe and have railings. Remove or lock up any objects that may be dangerous to your guests.


Ensure your venue is safe for children, or else notify artists of potential hazards.


Ensure your venue is properly ventilated and that temperature control is clearly marked and functional. Ensure artists are clear about how to safely use the heater.



How can I be mindful of my neighbours?

Building Rules:

Ensure you relay your building/common area rules to your patrons. You may want to even notify your surrounding neighbours that you will be hosting a performance, and remind audiences not to bother your neighbours (e.g., don’t knock on their door or buzz them to let you in).


Ensure you relay parking rules for your building and neighbourhood to your patrons.


Remind guests about keeping noise down as they enter and exit your property. Develop a policy about how performers and guests will use your space and ensure your guests are clear about your ‘policy.’


To avoid surprises, you may want to include the information covered above in your Anywhere Theatre listing profile.


Whom should I notify that I’m hosting on Anywhere Theatre?



Consider an agreement in writing between host venues and performers which outlines things like how often you plan to perform, any rehearsal dates and times and how you will share the revenue if that makes sense for you. Please also ensure you have all the necessary Occupational Health & Safety paperwork completed.


Consider whether you should notify your neighbours about your plans to host a show, along with your plan for how to make sure your guests are not disruptive.

General Regulations

What local regulations apply to me?



Ensure you look up any local taxes or business license requirements that may apply. This may include things like sales, and other turnover taxes such as Value Added Tax (VAT) or Goods and Services Tax (GST), or income tax.

Permits or Registrations:

Ensure you look up any permitting, zoning, safety, and health regulations that may apply. The governing authorities that regulate the use and development of property in your area may have useful information on such regulations.


What insurance should I get to cover my venue?

Basic Coverage:

Review your insurance policy with your insurance carrier to make sure you have adequate coverage.


Ensure you have adequate liability coverage as well as property protection.
