Home / Find a space / Fusion on First

Named for its location on First Avenue and its fusion of performing and visual arts, fashion, industrial design and entrepreneurship, Fusion on First offers a way to engage students interested in those programs and provides connections to creative entrepreneurship opportunities.


The Edson Entrepreneurship + Innovation Institute hosts a 3,900 square foot space on the ground floor of Fusion on First for co-working, pop-up retail, events and exhibitions. This space is a fully activated element of the larger sixteen story, 283,000 square foot building housing Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts programs in fashion and popular music. With apartment-style living, it’s also a place where more than 500 undergraduate and graduate students call home. Reservation priority is given to events supporting entrepreneurial initiatives.

This space is best suited for

  • Any ASU student interested in pursuing entrepreneurial ideas and participating in events in the space.
  • ASU undergraduate students and graduate students studying design, popular music and fashion.
  • Available for ASU staff and faculty.
