As part of our community engagement activities regarding ArtsCommon 118, we undertook two focus groups with 18 Artists. Fourteen filled out an assessment form that asked for their “happiness” ranking on 10 key program elements of the project. In aggregate for all ten elements, the happiness rate was 79%; 19% offered “neutral” rankings and only 2% of rankings denoted “sadness”.
Artists were affirming of the project but some were uncertain if the size of lofts were big enough and if the parking spaces were sufficient.
