This conversation will focus on arts organization advocacies that have succeeded in protecting and conserving artists studio/workspace at below market renthere in the Bay Area. Topics include: how to incentivize individuals to invest in affordable artist studio space, developing more studio opportunities for low-income artists and the future of live-work space in San Francisco.
