Artist Space Development: Financing

April 18, 2008


In 2003, an Urban Institute report concluded that lack of affordable space posed critical constraints in artists ability to pursue their work effectively. Scarcity of affordable space not only made it difficult for artists to work but also disrupted entire communities of artists who relied on each other for ideas and support. In response to this finding, this report looks at both a range of ways in which more affordable artist spaces can be created and the impact of artists spaces on neighborhoods and cities.
