Olympia Artspace Alliance was formed in July 2011 to raise funds and spearhead the development of affordable, combined studio/residential housing for artists and their families in downtown Olympia.
Nearly five years later, OAA is a passionate and dedicated group of volunteers that has made great progress towards that goal. In 2013-2014 we completed a survey of the space needs of hundreds of artists and creative sector businesses. In September 2015 we received an independent feasibility study that helps inform our next steps of further analyzing funding models and selecting a site for the project.
