Examples include artist studios, co-working, rehearsal, performance, gallery/exhibition, or live/work space. We want to hear from you!

Artists and creative workers of all types and levels welcome! Including, but not limited to: Performance or visual artists, photographers, authors, 2D and 3D artists, musicians, interior designers, craft artists, fine artists, makeup artists, music directors or composers, graphic designers, poets, writers, actors, dancers, any person working in the creative sector, and more!

Stop by anytime during this interactive open house and share with us! Creative activities, food and refreshments provided.
