“Spaceworks builds a creative space that allows for communal art making. I appreciate that Spaceworks trusts and respects the artists by giving them agency over managing their interaction with the rehearsal rooms on their own. I’ve had only positive experience with the organization and can’t thank Spaceworks enough for supporting artists by providing the affordable work place for us.”
