SpaceFinder LA increases the visibility of creative spaces throughout Los Angeles County. Venues can market unbooked rental space by creating a listing and uploading a digital calendar, while artists can discover space based on location, price, amenities, and up-to-date availability. Built by nonprofit Fractured Atlas, SpaceFinder LA is free to list or search for space.
SpaceFinder LA serves all of Los Angeles County. Additional SpaceFinder sites powered by Fractured Atlas can also be found in cultural hubs across North America.
For artists, the process of finding available and affordable work space is frustrating and inefficient. Meanwhile many spaces are tragically underutilized, even as rental revenue continues to be critical for sustainability of creative venues. SpaceFinder is an innovative solution for both artists and creative venues.
For cultural policy-makers the decision making process around building projects, subsidizing venues, or re-purposing space for cultural use often presents a serious challenge. The data collected through SpaceFinder about where spaces are and what artists are looking for can help cultural policy-makers make more informed decisions.
