The intended use for the space is:
- To provide affordable and accessible spaces on a cost-recovery basis that balances sustainability and affordability
- For local musicians, music groups, and non-profit organizations to create, rehearse, record, and occasionally perform their music
The space will be finished and equipped (excluding furniture and AV equipment) for non-profit music production. We will have available an allowance for equipment, fixtures, and basic fitting out of the space.
