Artist Space Assistance Program Resources

Planning and Service Resources

  • Square Feet Seattle, a guide to acquiring cultural space, produced by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs
  • Shunpike’s Arts Business Clinic, where anyone can take advantage of low-cost personalized strategy sessions
  • Shunpike’s Arts Space Google Group – this group has been set up to connect artists to each other to discuss their search for space. You will need a Google account to sign in to the group.


  • Craigslist, where you can search under Housing/Office & Commercial with search terms “art,” “studio,” and/or “share”
  • ActivSpace – which has locations in Ballard, Phinney, Fremont, Lake City and West Seattle – for short- or long-term rental
