Spaces Guide

This guide offers a list of live/work spaces, studio spaces and co-working spaces in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Some of the live-work spaces serve artists earning lower incomes, and many require applications. Some listings, such as makerspaces and co-working spaces, may require memberships. All available and current (as of Summer 2015) contact information is listed. This directory is by no means complete, and does not constitute a direct endorsement from Springboard. If you administer an artists’ studio space in the Twin Cities metro area you’d like to see listed here, please contact

For resources related to renting, home ownership, landlord/tenant issues, and emergency resources, please see our Other Housing Resources page.

Looking for short-term or temporary space? Check out SpaceFinder Minnesota, a searchable database of cultural facilities and venues available for rent anywhere in the state. Spaces for for auditions, rehearsals, performances, exhibitions, meetings, classes and special events can be found or listed here for free. SpaceFinder Minnesota is a project of Springboard, the Minnesota Theater Alliance, and Fractured Atlas.
