Through creative repurposing of the former 78,000 sq. ft. middle school building, The 204 currently has 40 long-term studios. The center is a cooperative effort between the Town and our greatest resource - the creative, local individuals that help to make our town a destination for visitors from around the world. The building provides valuable “launch space” where individuals can actualize their creative gifts and contribute to the local economy.
We are rented to capacity at the current time, but we are accepting applications from artists, creatives, makers, and writers seeking affordable studio space, for our waitlist. Please see below for additional details.
