Affordable Housing+Workspace+Economic Development Support

The Siler Yard: Arts+Creativity Center represents a completely novel approach to community development that will combine affordable live/work rental space with shared workshop and community facilities, all amplified through on-site economic development support programming.

Housing Creative Entrepreneurs

Siler Yard will serve lower-income creative entrepreneurs and their families. People from diverse backgrounds working in the visual arts, music, theater, dance, media arts, applied arts, healing arts, designers, entrepreneurs, writers, craftsmen, builders, makers, and people in related industries that support those professions.

Community Shared Resources

By integrating community resources such as a community maker-space led by MAKE Santa Fe, with meeting rooms, exhibition spaces, performance spaces, and public open space, Siler Yard will support the surrounding neighborhood, the broader creative economy, and create a new kind of place that serves as a vibrant intersection of Santa Fe creative culture.
