Creative Compass: Helping artists navigate opportunity in greater Cleveland

Creative Compass

In 2007, CPAC launched an initiative to increase artists’ access to home and business space ownership. It began with the understanding that artists could improve their chances at economic success by building equity. Recognizing that there are a number of critical factors contributing to artists’ success, and a need for many similar connections to be made, we developed Creative Compass. This website is a tool for artists to share information, find artist opportunities and build connections with each other and with the broader community.
