Colorado Springs Creative Collective, the folks working with Minneapolis-based organization ArtSpace to create an affordable artistic live/work space downtown, have released the preliminary findings of their Arts Market Survey.

The Arts Market Survey was meant to take the temperature of the local arts community in order to gauge need, as well as solidify what a live/work space might look like for local artists. While the preliminary data doesn't yet include the most enlightening results, it does provide a picture of the 686 people who took the survey.

Final results will not be publicly released until Oct. 23, but Bob Wolfson of the collective offered the following in the meantime:

Preliminary Arts Market Survey Findings
Preliminary compilation of the data showed that 686 of you took the Survey! Artspace has shared with me that that is an impressive number for a community our size. With regards to how many of you would consider relocating to an affordable live/work community, 32.2% or 221 of you said "yes". An equally impressive number. An email glitch kept me from getting the Survey summary out to you sooner.

Who were the respondents? Well, 81.2% of respondents currently live in Colorado Springs. With 63% of respondents describing themselves as female and 34.3% describing themselves as male. With regards to age, 22% were 21 to 30 years of age with around 17% to19% in each subsequent decade through 70 years of age.

What's the preferred location? Here, nearly 82% offered Downtown Colorado Springs with a strong second choice being Old Colorado City with around 75% offering that as a choice – remember that you could select more than one location. Other quadrants of Colorado Springs garnered around 22% to 29%.

So, there you have Artspace's a preliminary data summary from the Arts Market Survey. Now please remember that these are currently unverified data and could, thus, change somewhat in the full report.

Arts Market Survey Report Event
With regards to the full report of the Arts Market Survey, the findings will be formally presented to the arts and creative communities and our community supporters on Monday evening, October 23. So, if you have not done so, please save the date. We are planning a party. A location remains in the works.
