Spacefinder Seattle is a matchmaking tool for artists and artspaces.
Artists: Whether you’re looking for creative maker-spaces such as rehearsal rooms or painting studios, or presentation spaces such as black-box theaters or galleries, or event spaces, or culinary art space, or meeting space, or classrooms, or even raw warehouses or empty storefronts, then you’ve come to the right place.
Venues: Whether you’re full to capacity with rentals and simply want to market your venue for future use, or you’re looking for a new audience of artists and organizations who may not yet know about your spaces, you’ve come to the right place.
Spacefinder Seattle is a database of every rental space in the region (that we know of) that’s available to artists and arts & cultural organizations. It’s a way to discover spaces that might not already be on your radar, it’s a way to cross-pollinate art disciplines (maybe the most appropriate rehearsal space for your project is an artist’s studio?), and it’s a way to help grease the wheels of our regional artspace marketplace.
