Help VENUS to Launch!

Become a part of the community of Venus, a new downtown incubator for conscious creative community facilitated by the St. Pete Women's Collective .

Our 1,600-square-foot space, located at 244 Dr. MLK Jr. Street N., houses five artist studios, flexible co-working area, a gallery, exchange library, shared art supplies, and more.

Your contribution can help keep this venue vital and accessible, helping us provide low-cost work space and free public programming such as educational workshops and monthly craft nights.

Our vision is to empower forward-thinking artists and entrepreneurs in their growth by offering an affordable, accessible venue—something that is ever more challenging to secure in our rapidly growing city.

Your contributions provide opportunity for this grassroots space to flourish, building a platform for makers, and an engaging experience for visitors of all ages.

For us, the story of Venus begins in 2016 when several women artists, displaced from their studios, decided to join with other local creatives to build a new intentional reality. We founded the St. Pete Women’s Collective (SPWC), a non-profit dedicated to fostering education, empowerment and creativity in the community, uplifting female-identifying artists and their allies.

Venus is the next step in our grassroots journey.

If you are local to the Tampa Bay area, please join us at our May 25th  Visions of Venus Art Show and Grand Opening. 


SPWC is a fully volunteer-driven organization that relies on an active support network to thrive. In this time of women's empowerment, we are determined to make an impact in a community we care deeply about.

Join us on this journey and get involved in shaping the vision of Venus. Every contribution counts!

Together, we're unstoppable.
