Calling All Artists - Artspace Market Survey Launch

Rude Mechs is happy to provide The Off Center for the launch of the Artspace Market Survey of Artists, Arts Organizations, and Creative Sector Businesses.

On Tuesday October 30th at 6:30pm, The City of Austin, in partnership with Austin Playhouse, and Artspace, will launch the survey with a public presentation.

While the survey can be taken online, we encourage you to come to the presentation, learn about their plans, and meet everyone - be a part of the conversation. The Off Center is located at 2211-A Hidalgo St., Austin TX 78702.

The online survey will be available from October 30 through December 31, 2012. Artists, arts organizations, and for-profit creative sector businesses are all encouraged to complete the survey.

For more information, please contact Janet Seibert at 512-974-7860, or

"The purpose of the market survey will be two-fold. The City envisions that the survey data will
provide valuable information for the planning of corridors, creative hubs, arts districts, and incubators. Such cultural spaces are essential to support Austin’s growing creative sector which, according to recent economic impact studies, accounts for $4.35 billion in economic activity, over $71 million in City tax revenues, and nearly 49,000 jobs. The results of the survey will also identify Austin’s specific creative sector space needs and requirements, which will be made available to local developers, building owners, and foundations interested in developing such creative spaces." - Janet Seibert, City of Austin Cultural Arts Division
