Salida and the Salida Creative District have been selected, through a competitive process, as the location of the next creative facility to be developed under the Space to Create program. Space to Create is the first state-driven initiative in the U.S. for affordable space for creatives in rural communities. Artspace, a nonprofit with a mission to Create Foster and Preserve Affordable and Sustainable space for Artists and Arts Organizations, is the real estate development partner.
The first step in the process is a Preliminary Feasibility Study and this Creative Space Needs Study to assess demand for space, the potential to fund space, site opportunities, and local leadership, community member and other stakeholder support for a new facility.
