Thank you for attending our meeting.
We are still waiting on the recording to be finished and when ready will be available here.
Meanwhile please download and review a draft of the report and recommendations: Somerville Arts Space Risk Assessment report here.
The Somerville Arts Space Risk Assessment analyzes the impact of development pressure on arts organizations across the city and makes recommendations for how to protect art spaces and support the creative economy.
This report provides anaylsis, policies, and recommendations reviewed by the Arts Space Task Force, MAPC, and the Somerville Arts Council during 2021 and concerns arts spaces, zoning and planning. As a community let's get ready for the New Year to roll out these policies and initiatives.
Thanks to those who are serving on the Arts Space Task Force, including, Resa Blatman, Steven Flythe, Callie Chapman, Randal Thurston, Kevin Gatlin, former City Councilor William White, Tom Galligani, Sarah Lewis, Josh Safdie, Barbara Mangum, Kristen Stelijes, Jay Paget and a big thanks to the MAPC for all their work on this important issue.
