Founded in 2008, Spoke is a multifaceted artist-run organization comprised of six artist studios and an open space for public programming and projects. Since its inception, Spoke has been host to collaboration and exchange through the production of innovative events, performances, workshops, exhibitions and community-based projects. The public project space and working artist studios are shared, which creates a strong open atmosphere and sense of community both within and outside of the space. This unique arrangement allows for the unexpected to occur while encouraging an open and fluid exchange of dialogue and ideas among residents, visitors, collaborators, and the public. Spoke is dedicated to providing a place of spontaneity, experimentation, and accessibility where a diverse range of artists and creative individuals or groups can create, brainstorm, experiment, and develop new projects and ideas.
