Join me as we take a big step forward in supporting our artists and creative community–the Artspace Market Survey Launch Party. This free event will be held on Wednesday, April 8th, 7:00 p.m., at the Lifeline Theater, 6912 N. Glenwood.
I am joining the Rogers Park Business Alliance and theRogers Park Builders Group to kick off a major online surveyof artists, arts organizations, and creative businesses in Rogers Park to determine the size and nature of the market for an Artspace mixed-use project. The event is open to all, but I especially encourage artists and directors of arts organizations and owners of creative businesses to attend.
Artspace, the nation’s leading developer for the arts, will use results of the survey to determine the size of the market in Rogers Park for affordable live/work housing, studio and work space of various kinds.
The survey is the second phase of a scope of work that began last June when an Artspace team conducted a preliminary feasibility visit to Rogers Park.
If the survey identifies a market for an Artspace project, and the community supports such a project, the survey results will help determine the size, scope and location of the project. The survey will also help Artspace determine specific design and programmatic decisions, such as rents, square footage, parking spaces, and the types of shared creative spaces to include. Artists who take the survey will have the option of being among the first to be informed of project developments, including leasing opportunities.
Please join me next Wednesday for refreshments, fun, and to learn more about the survey.
