Creative Spaces Project

Many commercial property owners and local businesses have under-used or under-developed spaces in their buildings that could be made use of. 

The Creative Spaces Project is an ongoing project to identify key areas of need for space among artists, creative professionals, and arts organizations, and with outreach activities aimed at local businesses, arts organizations, and property owners to identify spaces in the city that are appropriate for use as art studios, offices, and performing arts events.
