Arts & Culture Sesion

From the creation of shared spaces for art studios, theatre performances and galleries to the sharing of equipment and the marketing & distribution of their artwork, co-ops are a key resource for artists. Find out how new applications of co-op models can strengthen arts & culture in our city and help artists succeed in a challenging environment where support for the arts is declining.

Presenters for this session will include:
