Shipyard Trust for the Arts and Root Division co-host a panel discussion: Developing and Preserving Artist Studio Space in the Bay Area and Beyond

Moderated by Michelle Mansour (Executive Director, Root Division) and including panelists Karen Slater (VP, Shipyard Trust for the Arts Board of Directors), Brion Nuda Rosch (Director of Artist Studios, Minnesota Street Project), and Spike Kahn (Founder, Pacific Felt Factory), this conversation will focus on arts organization advocacy that has succeeded in protecting and conserving artists studio/workspace at below market rent here in the Bay Area. How was this done and how can these successes be applied in artist communities in other cities? Topics will include how to incentivize individuals to invest in affordable artist studio space, developing more studio opportunities for low-income artists, and the future of live-work space in San Francisco.

About the Event:

stARTup Art Fair SF is a three-day contemporary showcase for independent artists to sell their work out of the dynamic room spaces at Hotel Del Sol. The core mission of stARTup Art Fair is to provide an exhibition venue for unrepresented artists — artists who may have recently lost their gallery/galleries, or artists who have never had representation.
