1108 Artists’ Cooperative Membership Information

Juxtaposition Arts is an art-based community development center located in North Minneapolis that annually engages thousands of youth and adults through innovative cross-disciplinary programs and services. Our mission is to develop community by engaging and employing young urban artists in hands-on education initiatives that create pathways to self-sufficiency. Our programs utilize a mentor-apprentice model that prepares youth to use their art and design skills as a pathway to employment, entrepreneurship and higher education. We offer visual art/design-based after-school programs, in school residences, consulting services, creative jobs training for teens, and studio work space for adults in order to provide youth and emerging artists with pathways to our region’s robust arts and cultural industries and to contribute to more equitable vibrant neighborhoods and communities.
The mission of the 1108 Artists’ Co-Op is to provide quality affordable art making and creative small business space to traditionally underrepresented emerging and established artists who have a demonstrated commitment to North Minneapolis.
The studio space is located at 1108 West Broadway Avenue. It consists of 9 individual artists’ studios ranging from 126 sf to 445 sf. Co-op membership fees are $1 per sq foot per month depending on the size of the individual studio. (For example Studio 9 is 445 sq ft. and the co-op fees for that member are $445/month.) The studios can be used for art making, rehearsals, practices, small workshops, or as an artist’s business office. In addition to private studio space, co-op members have access to a shared conference room, and free internet Wi-Fi. Electricity, gas, trash and general maintenance of the building are covered by the monthly member fees.
Co-op memberships are available to artists, 18 years of age or older, who demonstrate professional experience and commitment in their genre. We welcome artists from all disciplines, arts-related start-up businesses, and arts entrepreneurs who have a connection to North Minneapolis and are committed to interfacing with local community members.
