Somerville Creative Industry Space Initiative

The Somerville Arts Council has created an initiative to help match your creative space needs (studio or live-work) with existing spaces available in Somerville and to gauge interest in developing new spaces.

Our intent is to gather information and work with creative workers with similar needs. In order for us to reach you, you must provide us your name and email address. This is NOT a survey but rather the start of a space matching initiative lead by you and the City.    

Please respond accurately to each of the questions. The information below will remain confidential with the Somerville Arts Council. We will contact you shortly about how to better understand your needs and serve you.
