Beginning the Omaha Mobile Stage Project

Omaha Mobile Stage Project

Launched in 2021, the Omaha Mobile Stage (OMS) project is transforming a repurposed 18-foot box truck into an accessible, adaptable and easily transportable stage. OMS is currently under construction and will be in dozens of outdoor public spaces in 2022 to provide free neighborhood-driven entertainment, arts enrichment, and a venue with sensory and audio accommodations. OMS will reach thousands of underserved youth, families and seniors annually.

Omaha Mobile Stage is at the intersection of the arts, community development and public health. We are a direct response to the pandemic. As the pandemic drags on, our goals of providing opportunities for social engagement and safe access to the performing arts are more relevant than ever.

The project is divided into two phases, the design and construction of a box truck into a state-of-the-art venue on wheels to be completed by a team of 16 students from UNL College of Architecture. The second phase is a live performing arts tour in Omaha public spaces and schools.
