Paonia, CO Arts Market Survey

Paonia has been selected, through a competitive process, as the location for the third creative facility to be developed under the Space to Create program, the first state-driven initiative in the U.S. for affordable space for creatives. To learn more about the statewide and local partners and funders behind the Space to Create, Colorado and Paonia initiatives, please click on the links below.  

If you are a practicing member of the creative sector, we want to know about your creative working and living space needs and preferences. Survey data will help us refine the plan for housing, private and shared studios and creative work spaces, including number, type and size of spaces, design features, amenities and affordable rent structures.

Even if you are not a creative, we want to know more about how you might use a new arts facility. Survey data will help inform business plans of those who may want to operate arts-friendly businesses or offer classes at the proposed facility.

If you consider your work to be a form of art, craft, cultural, or creative expression or heritage preservation then we probably will too. A practicing member of the creative sector:

  • Has a sincere commitment to their creative-based or cultural work
  • May or may not make any income from their creative-based or cultural work or pursue it full time
  • Has or is developing a body of work or is actively training or working in their field
  • May be engaged in any creative field(s) (e.g., culinary, visual, functional, digital, performing, cultural, literary, education, musical, administrative, and so on)
  • Comes from any and all walk of life
