Welcome to the Cultural Space Survey, and thank you for participating. The more we know about your needs, the better we can create opportunities to serve you. We’ve asked you a lot about your cultural space needs, and we’ve spent five years designing policies, programs, and projects to address what we’ve heard. Your guidance to date has lead us to look at how a new independent organization, created by the City but living independently, could serve you and your cultural space needs. Help us define this new organization and target the opportunities it represents. Please take this simple 6-minute survey and let us know more about how you interact with cultural space.

If your organization is included on the SpaceLabNW list, we will use the information that you have already provided on your current space. If you have not added your organization to the SpaceLab survey, please do so at http://spacelabnw.org/
