APT, a Creative Incubator

APT, a Creative Incubator is a demonstration space at 225 4th Avenue North for our thriving local art scene that is currently home to over 25 local artists of all art forms. The Arts Partnership and Kilbourne Group partnered to bring to fruition in 2016. APT is a multi-year, temporary demonstration space for the arts that includes studio spaces, gallery walls and rental areas for arts workshops, classes, rehearsals, performances and more.

APT’s mission is to provide a creative, collaborative and safe place for artists to make art and for the community to collide with it. We call the space APT because it provides a suitable environment for many creatives to thrive in a nurturing, shared, safe and creative environment. While in the space, individual artists of all types are growing their own artistry, getting more recognition of their art and joining a communal artistic practice of excellence that also serves the larger community.

Interested in a studio? We still have a few left, and we’d love to talk with you further about renting a permanent space. Contact APT Manager Christina Johnson at 701.237.6133 or christina@theartspartnership.net.
