By now, many of you have heard that The Arts Partnership has entered into a contract relationship with The Kilbourne Group to turn 225 4th Ave. N into an APT, an arts incubator, for the next two years.
As of November 14, we have filled 10 studio spaces with artists and organizations. This is really happening, and we couldn’t be more excited. At our open houses last week, we saw community starting to be built right in front of our eyes, and we know that that will just continue to happen over and over again.
Still pondering whether or not you should join APT? Meet at the space (225 4th Ave N in Fargo) on Thursday, November 17 from 5-6:30 with Susan Gartin, TAP’s consultant on APT. There are still great spaces left, both studio spaces and public spaces where you can join us for day rates.
This creative community is already coming together, and we want you to be part of it, too!
UPDATE (and it’s exciting!) November 5, 2016
By now, many of you have heard that The Arts Partnership has entered into a contract relationship with The Kilbourne Group to turn 225 4th Ave. N into an Arts Incubator for the next two years.
One thing we know at The Arts Partnership is that there is a shortage of artist space in the Fargo Moorhead metro. Please join TAP’s ED Dayna Del Val at the FMVA Meet and Greet Tuesday, October 18 from 7-9 pm at The Rourke to hear more about a space for artists. She will be talking about the Kilbourne building around 7:30. Also, join her at 6:30 pm on Thursday, October 20 at 225 4th Avenue North in downtown Fargo to look at the space and to talk about how we will create a two-year arts incubator for all kinds of artists sand art forms. We invite you to begin thinking about how you might make it a new, long-term temporary (2-year) home for your art studio, rehearsal space, gallery area, recording studio, classroom, lesson space and more. This is a fabulous opportunity for the arts community to create a shared work space that we can use as a model to show the metro how vital the arts are and what a significant economic asset we really are.
You could be in this building as soon as December 1, so don’t wait!
