We will be closed July 4-8 Details

The A.V. Closet is a service that allows artists to borrow cameras, lighting equipment, projectors and other audio-visual equipment from our St. Paul location.

Equipment can be borrowed for up to 3 days at no charge, up to once a month, for an annual fee of $20. It's also available as a free service to registered members of the Incubator and ReadyGo programs. Borrowers can make reservations online, and pick-up and return equipment at our Lowertown Resource Center during regular business hours.

How it works

Public memberships in the AV Closet require a 10-minute orientation with Springboard staff and an annual fee of $20 to be paid before equipment can be borrowed. Payments can also be made in person at Springboard for the Arts during your orientation, or over the phone with a major credit card. Orientation can be scheduled immediately before equipment is checked out for the first time.
