On March 5, 2007, the Arts Council will be holding a symposium on affordable artists' housing in the Greater New Haven Region. We will be inviting a dynamic variety of speakers from both the art and real estate development industries. Our hope is that both area artists and local developers will attend and engage in constructive dialogue to begin tackling this important issue.
In anticipation of the symposium, we're trying to gather as much information as possible about the current housing status and needs of area artists. We have compiled an online survey and ask that all area artists (visual, performing, and multimedia) give us five to seven minutes of your time to tell us a bit about where you live and work, how you pay for the spaces, and what amenities you'd like them to have.
You can access the survey by visiting http://www.artscouncilgnh.org/survey
Your answers will be of great use to us as we go about planning the event and making progress in developing new affordable spaces. If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to contact us at (203) 772-2788.
