Preserving Cultural Space During a Real Estate Boom - 30 Ideas from Seattle
Seattle Office of Arts & Culture has released a report exploring mechanisms for creating, activating, and preserving cultural spaces amid the city’s real estate boom.
“Despite cultural space’s role in strengthening neighborhoods, creating and maintaining these spaces in strong real estate markets can be extremely difficult. The older, smaller, more eccentric spaces that often house cultural uses and small businesses are particularly vulnerable to development-driven displacement.”
The CAP Report was created with input from dozens of artists, developers, property brokers, city staff, legal professionals, and arts leaders.
