About Artspace

Artspace  is a national nonprofit with a mission to create, foster, and preserve affordable and sustainable space for artists and arts organizations. From coast to coast, Artspace buildings provide affordable homes to some 2,000 artists and their families, as well as stable space to over 600 creative enterprises. In Minnesota, you can find us in Saint Paul, Minneapolis, Duluth, Brainerd, Hastings, and Fergus Falls. We are the proud new owner of the Northrup King Building in Northeast Minneapolis, preserving over 350 working artist studios; and in North Minneapolis we are currently building 100 live/work units for the upcoming Northside Artspace Lofts! 

Help Us Build Forward 

Over the last year, both the creative and the affordable housing sectors have experienced devastating setbacks as a result of the pandemic. Artspace communities have been hit hard, and housing security for far too many has been threatened. Historically, housing insecurity has disproportionately affected communities of color, and given the widening gaps brought by the pandemic, addressing disparities in housing insecurity is at the core of Artspace’s work-- and contributes to addressing the nation’s larger racial inequities. 

At Artspace our work is based on the belief that secure housing and space for creative enterprises are foundational for the health, well-being, and economic opportunity for individuals and families in every community. This year, we are working diligently to make more resources and opportunities available to BIPOC, low-income, LGBTQIA+ and other underserved communities to access affordable housing, build wealth through affordable workspace, and have the technical assistance and training needed to address their space needs.

How You Can Help 

During SpringForwardMN this May 1-11, we are raising funds to support our efforts to build forward towards a racially just economic recovery for the creative and housing sectors. Your gift right now is an investment towards creating, fostering, and preserving our diverse and vibrant arts communities infrastructure. 

 Give Today

Our work is not possible without the support of Artspace project partners, community partners, donors, and most importantly, the diverse and vibrant communities of artists we work with every day. Together we build forward.
