It promotes the work of our artists to a broad and diverse audience, advocates for art opportunities, develops permanent, affordable live-work studio space and ensures that art is an essential part of the life of a creative city. Flansburgh Architects is working with FPAC to develop a prototype live-work community which investigates the relationship of micro living units, live-work units, shared work spaces and commercial space.
