The Creative Spaces Consulting Visit focuses on a community’s vision for creating an arts facility or district. This visit is similar to a Preliminary Feasibility Visit, but offers a highly customized visit to address the specific goals of the community, especially when the result is not likely to be an Artspace-developed project. As a part of this service, an Artspace team tours the space under consideration; meets with artists, city officials, and other stakeholders; and conducts a public meeting.
We help communities address civic challenges such as finding a creative use for a city-owned property, evaluating the artist component of a project led by a for-profit developer, or assessing an arts district.
What is Included:
- Consulting phone/email time in preparation for the visit, including review of invitation lists, invitations, and potential building/site summaries
- Original Artspace materials to aid in preparing and presenting information from the visit
- One- or two-day visit by Artspace staff to facilitate meetings, give presentations, and collect information about the project
- Written report to summarize our findings and recommended next steps
