ArtsBuild Launches Survey For Artist Live/Work Space Tuesday

Monday, March 24, 2014
The public is invited to attend the Artspace Survey Launch event from 5:30–7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at The Church on Main, 1601 Rossville Ave.. The event is free.
 
ArtsBuild is partnering with Minneapolis-based Artspace to conduct an online survey of artists, arts organizations, and creative businesses in the Chattanooga area to determine the nature of the local market for a mixed-use project.
 
Artspace, the nation’s leading developer for the arts, will use information from the survey to identify the types and number of spaces needed by Chattanooga artists and the amenities and special features that are of interest to them.
The results of the survey will enable Artspace to determine the size of the market in Chattanooga for affordable live/work artist housing and studio space.
 
The survey is the second phase in a scope of work that began last September when a team from Artspace conducted a preliminary feasibility visit in Chattanooga. If the online survey identifies a viable market for an Artspace project and the community decides to proceed, survey results will inform both the project concept and site selection. Survey responses will also impact specific design and programmatic decisions such as square footage, parking spaces, types of shared creative spaces to include, rents, etc. Artists who take the survey will have the option of being among the first to be informed of project developments, including leasing opportunities.
 
The Chattanooga Artspace project is supported by Lyndhurst Foundation and Benwood Foundation.
 
Additional information about the survey is available at www.ChattanoogaArtspace.org and on Facebook.
