Omaha Mobile Stage wins SARA National Design Award
FACT is thrilled to announce that the Omaha Mobile Stage won an Honor Award in the 2023 SARA Student National Design Awards. This is wonderful recognition for the efforts of students to work together in the FACT designbuild studio to bring the vision of Partners for Livable Omaha to reality.
Omaha Mobile Stage is a creative placemaking project designed and built by the FACT as a portable stage serving as a cultural and economic catalyst in public spaces and main streets throughout the Omaha metropolitan area. A converted box truck serves as a fully functional mobile small-capacity venue bringing all forms of performing arts to communities and schools. The team transformed a used 18’ diesel box truck into an all-inclusive mobile, expandable stage with multi-functional curtain, built-in storage, sound and lighting equipment, battery power, and acoustic treatments. All elements of a versatile small venue are integrated with an overriding, unique aesthetic capable of being set up by 2 stagehands in less than 30 minutes.
FACT worked with many partners and collaborators, including the project sponsor Partners for Livable Omaha, to realize this important project of the City of Omaha. Visit the project page for more information.
