Read below some experiences from users of the 4Squares in previous sessions

“It was a really pleasurable experience and I was very grateful to have some space to work in. All artists in the room yesterday were very respectful of each other and negotiated/communicated sharing the space really well."


As a dance artist who is in need of space for creating, moving, and filming it was very helpful to be offered free studio space.
