The Boston arts community is bustling with new productions, exhibits, and performances every day, and artists are always looking for a place to create and present their work. But if you’re an artist looking for a place to establish yourself, a theatre company in the market for a new home, or a musician hoping to book another venue, where do you start the search?
The Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston is excited to announce the launch of SpaceFinderMass, an online service enabling artists and creative spaces to connect with one another. Launched by the A&BC with support from StageSource and funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, SpaceFinderMass is the latest platform created by Fractured Atlas, which has already established similar services in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and elsewhere in the United States with great success. Bringing this service to Massachusetts, the A&BC hopes to make communication between artists and rental spaces easier and more efficient through one easy-to-use directory, free of charge.
SpaceFinder presents an easy, organized way to search for rental space based on your specifications. Interested renters can search through SpaceFinder’s directory based on space usage, availability, discipline, rates, 7location, size, and more. These filters are designed to help you find a space that best suits your particular needs. Popular venues are included, but lesser-known spaces are not forgotten, and SpaceFinder’s search system gives all listings equal opportunity for visibility. Therefore, SpaceFinder is not only a service for artists but also arts organizations and venues that can use this platform to promote their rental spaces. Furthermore, all types of space listings can find their niche in SpaceFinder – currently there are listings for studio space, performance venues and theaters, event halls, live/work artist housing, and more!
