Grand Creative Resource Library

The Grand Creative Resource Library is a lending library offering the tools needed to create electronic music and sound art. Paired with access to workshops, labs, incubators, and events produced by the contributing partners, this collective resource will eliminate barriers to creation at the forefront of art and technology.

Borrowers from the Grand Creative Resource Library will receive a basic orientation to the equipment they check out. They will then be given priority access to active workshops in the Grand Theater community that employ these tools. 

We are proud to offer resources to sustain and advance an inclusive creative community. The Grand Creative Resource Library prioritizes opportunities for students and creators from diverse backgrounds that are underrepresented in the fields of art, music, and technology. 

The Library is now open for lending. If selected, individuals will be contacted to pick up instruments available starting June 2nd, 2021 at Gray Area (2665 Mission St., San Francisco, CA). Equipment will be available for loan for two weeks.

Equipment Check Out Days: Wednesdays 4pm – 6pm
Equipment Return Days: Tuesdays 4pm – 6pm


The Grand Creative Resource Library is a collaboration between Crowbar Corner, Gray Area, and ZERO1.

The Grid

ZERO1 is a partner organization of The Grid, a global network connecting artists, technologists, cultural institutions, policy makers, and the global tech industry initiated by EUNIC Silicon Valley. The Grid follows an ambitious vision: to incorporate art-thinking into the development of new technologies and to jump-start a conversation between artists, technologists, and policy makers from around the world. ZERO1 has participated in panel conversations and curated interactive experiences for “The Grid: Exposure - Art + Tech + Policy Days,” which explored innovative ways to reconnect the world in a state of pandemic isolation and contributes to its annual Art + Tech report.

Matchbox Labs

Matchbox is an art+tech interactive lab series, hosted at CounterPulse in partnership with ZERO1 and Kinetech Arts, that seeds collaboration beyond disciplines.

Designed as public practicum labs that are open to the public, Matchbox pairs creative technologists with dancers and choreographers to spark critical investigations and seed cutting-edge works.

Matchbox creates an opportunity for these two creative communities to find places of overlapping values, and serves as a framework for a more collaborative urban arts ecology.
