Artscape is a not-for-profit urban development organization that makes space for creativity and transforms communities. Our work involves clustering creative people together in real estate projects that also advance multiple public policy objectives, private development interests, community and neighbourhood aspirations and philanthropic missions.
Since 1986, we have won awards for our innovative work and become recognized as a leader in creative placemaking, a practice that leverages the power of art, culture and creativity to catalyze change, growth and transformation of communities. We achieve our mission through developing and managing unique cultural facilities and delivering programs and services for the creative community and other space innovators.
Our success is driven by our ability to work effectively across disciplines to align values, leadership, investment and public policy. We work constantly to expand our portfolio, share our expertise and advance the field, offering training, mentoring and coaching, and learning opportunities through our Creative Placemaking Lab and tools and resources on Artscape DIY.
As a not-for-profit urban development organization we develop and manage unique multi-tenant facilities that anchor sustainable and below-market production, rehearsal, exhibition and living space for artists, creative practitioners, entrepreneurs and cultural organizations in rapidly changing neighbourhoods. Since 1986, we have helped to stimulate some of Toronto's most creative and vibrant neighbourhoods with dynamic community assets and community cultural hubs including Daniels Spectrum, Artscape Wychwood Barns, Artscape Youngplace, and Artscape Gibraltar Point.
