WCT’s Incubator for the ARTS is a place for creative collaboration with other artists. Short-term 3-6 month artist leases are offered and include utilities, internet and 24-hour building access. Spaces range from $100-$325/month. While WCT’s main goal is to provide local artists with affordable studio space to create and establish themselves within the community, their future aim is to expand the space into a place that tenants can teach their art to the public.
WCT’s long term goal is to offer an artist residency program to include an annual showcase of their work at The Palace. One pipeline project is to have local artists paint installations on one of the Trust’s buildings. This will give exposure to Main Street’s pedestrians and drivers. The Union Trust building is an ideal location for artists with The White Rabbit, Rabbit Hole Records, Connections Café, Sun Dawg Café, Caffe Barista, and Seton Hill’s Performing Arts Center all within walking distance.
