What Does a Creative Community Need?

PROJECT UPDATES

Can you imagine a place in Provincetown where creatives of all kinds can work side by side? A space with shared resources and programs that support community and small businesses? An un-juried exhibition space to show your work? A building that’s in the center of town and open year-round? Those are elements of the vision that the nonprofit Provincetown Commons is developing for the reuse of the old community center at 46 Bradford Street.

Work studios of any kind are hard to come by, and the ones that do exist are expensive and typically out of reach. We are developing a membership program that will provide access to studio space and additional resources like fast internet that you need to make a living from your creative work. 

 The former Community Center building at 46 Bradford Street was built in the 1930s on the site of the original Governor Bradford School. In 2011, Town Meeting voted to sell the building, but it has sat vacant since.  Photo courtesy of David Dunlap,  Building Provincetown .
