going live

Interactive galleries, community projects, immersive installations, or learning cafes can help to spread new ideas far and wide but they are especially challenged financially when they try to access space.  Because of the price of real estate many new startups struggle for space.  At new we love live experiences but struggle under the weight of the costs of space which makes our work prohibitively expensive.  How to be live and cost effective for our audience?  All perspectives gratefully appreciated.
