The Gray Area Incubator is a peer-driven community of creators developing work at the intersection of art and technology.
Membership is a 6 month commitment, though many have continued on much longer to develop their works in the Incubator.

After four rounds of the Incubator program, we are excited to have a new format focused on retention of members and supporting a peer-driven community workspace. In addition to three studios, Gray Area will be focused on offering dedicated desks to ten members in the Incubator Mezzanine space. A change from the drop-in style format of previous rounds, this will allow artists to store computers and other equipment and allow for 24/7 access to a committed work environment, reinforcing community involvement. Even though we are providing more access, we are keeping the low rate of $250/month in order to support artistic development.
