Alternative space pilot program | Deadline 5.5

The City is inviting artists and arts groups to apply for free rehearsal space at the Starr Center at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. The Alternative Space Piolet Project is a partnership between the City of Boston and local businesses and institutions. The goal is to help make underused private spaces available to artists. The Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture helps match arts groups and artists to available spaces on a regular basis. Commitments to any of the spaces are for at least one year. 

The selected artists or group will enter into an agreement with Massachusetts Eye and Ear for a year of free rehearsal space. The space is open thanks to Mayor Walsh, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, and the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture.
