- Artspace programs fall in three broad categories: property development, asset management, and
- Property Development: Developing projects typically involve the adaptive reuse or older buildings, but can also involve new construction projects.
- Asset Management: Artspace owns or co-owns all the buildings it develops in order to ensure properties are well-maintained while remaining affordable for the low- and moderate-income artists that were developed for.
- National Consulting: Artspace consults for communities, organizations, and individuals that are seeking information and advice about developing affordable housing and work space for artists, performing arts centers, and cultural districts. Many times consulting projects fall within the context of historic preservation.
- Performance Property Management: To further the specific needs of its Twin Cities properties, in 1998 Artspace started its own subsidiary property management agency, Performance Property Management Company.
- Resource Development: As a nonprofit that relies on contributed as well as earned income, Artspace cultivates relationships with the foundation and corporate philanthropic communities, as well as local, state, and federal governmental agencies, in communities across the country.
