Minneapolis, MN — Oglala Lakota Artspace: Native Arts & Business Incubator administered in partnership with The Lakota and First Peoples Fund
The Big Idea
The Oglala Lakota Arts and Business Incubator is a new concept developed by Artspace, First Peoples Fund and Lakota Funds. The partners hope to increase the role art plays in community and economic development. An architect will design a facility for local artists and small business owners who lack sufficient access to space, networks, credit and tools. The facility will house leasable co-working studios, a computer lab, administrative offices and a gallery space. This collaborative approach supports the local economy on Pine Ridge that is based on Native values.
