About

About The Space:

115 Legion
is a multi-use community event space, print shop, and media lab in Squaxin and Nisqually territory in so-called #Olympia, Washington.

115 Legion is the only thing of its kind downtown. It's a space that anyone can access despite financial barriers. Not just to attend events, but to take part, organize, host, and create.


Our Story:

115 Legion
began as the project of a small collective of friends with an eye towards increasing the possibilities and capacities of autonomous, community-oriented projects in the Olympia area and creating spaces where people can encounter one other and find out what we share in common. We rented our space in May, 2018 and set to work completely renovating and reworking the space.

in August of 2018 we celebrated our grand opening with a full week of events and have been going non-stop since, with multiple happenings in the space almost every day! In just three months of operating we’ve hosted fundraisers for the Justice for Yvonne campaign and other local struggles, self-defense courses, free school classes, trainings, book talks, movie nights, discussion and recovery groups, dinners, art shows, parties and so much more.

Our print shop hosts screen-printing and bookbinding 101s each month where guests can learn the skills to become regular users of the space, as well as the recent events Print Against Patriarchy (in support of the #metoo movement) and Print Against Borders (in solidarity with the migrant caravan making its way through Latin America).

When we started 115 our hope was that our idea would find traction and take on a life of its own as friends and strangers came together to transform the space every day. So far, the response has been a powerful affirmation. Now that we know people want 115 to exist, it's time to open it up to you, our supporters, to keep this wonderful, free, and important project running.
