Visitors are welcomed onto our campus for free AXIS events, featuring fun interactive programs for the whole family. Two of these, Word Up! and The Poet’s Tree, were launched virtually during the pandemic shutdown and now go live on our Copley Plaza. They are joined by brand new events created just for our signature AXIS series.

Realizing our commitment to making theatre matter to more people, AXIS offers free cultural programs on the Globe’s Copley Plaza, led by local artists and craftspeople. The Globe’s unique physical location—and now our social media platforms—are participatory art venues where we make opportunities for connectivity and creative placemaking. AXIS is an effort to broaden our concept of audience by encompassing diverse, multigenerational constituencies from communities across San Diego County.

This year’s lineup includes:

COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy
