The Office of Arts & Culture launched the Artist Space Assistance Program (ASAP) in January 2012 to provide relocation and placement services for artists and arts organizations. Administered by Shunpike with support from 4Culture, the pilot program ran through March 1.
ASAP is for artists working in all genres and arts groups seeking long-term affordable arts space. Shunpike assessed artist needs and space opportunities and offered direct services to a pilot group of artists and arts groups. The pilot program focused on the Pioneer Square and Chinatown-International District neighborhoods. The goal is to develop a model for expanding the program to other Seattle neighborhoods.
Stay tuned for results of the pilot and plans to extend the ASAP program.
