Support

The Creative Economy is growing and we know from over 20 years of working with artists that they need all the support they can get to market themselves and grow as business people, as well as artists. This includes renting artist studios, creating music studios for music teachers to rent for lessons. A dark room and recording studio are also in discussion.

Community
Collaboration
Space

There is no real open community space in the region where groups can meet to collaborate on projects. Not only can community groups use the open collaboration space, we can work with them on equipment sharing agreements. Our surveys have also indicated artists in the region are longing for networking and places to meet, collaborate, and be inspired by other artists.

Education
& Workforce
Development

There is a need in this region for skilled laborers. This space can provide training in basic carpentry and electronics skills. Additionally, the space lends itself very well to:

  • Business growth and planning seminars
  • Shark Tank-like programs and facilities to help hone presentation skills
  • Scout badge programs
  • School STEAM programs
  • Summer camps, specifically focusing on STEM education
  • After school programs
