The Arts Factory is a space for independent artists and collectives interested in studio space in a newly renovated warehouse at 281 Industrial Avenue. We have designed a space for artists to co-locate with other professionals in a building that provides shared infrastructure and a community atmosphere.
The Arts Factory has four large communal studios. We do not have individual, closed-off spaces. While artists are allowed to modify the space to some degree to suit their needs, the idea is to have open communal studios.
Our space is primarily geared for artists working with industrial based fabrication processes. We do not have studio spaces suitable for rehearsals or performances.
