The Preliminary Feasibility Visit kick-starts the process of creating affordable space for artists. It is the first step Artspace takes on its own development projects.

As part of this fact-finding process, the team meets with artists, city officials, funders, and other stakeholders. They look at multiple buildings and sites to start to visualize the project, and hold a public meeting to welcome community participation and generate a buzz.

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
  • 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
