License "Square Feet" in YOUR Community

“Resource materials like “Square Feet” are fantastic tools for artists and members of the arts and cultural community. Having Artscape create the base template and structure the document in a way that makes it easy for us to add in Vancouver and BC based content is ideal. We never would have been able to create such a guide on our own; this is a great example of a content partnership that is going to deliver powerful results for our local community.”
-Jacqueline Gijssen, Senior Cultural Planner, Cultural Services, City of Vancouver
Looking to rent or buy creative space? “Square Feet” is the indispensable resource manual for artists and small arts organizations.

Square Feet has recently been licensed by the City of Vancouver to offer a unique, tailored guide for renting and buying creative space to Vancouver area artists and arts organizations.

Whether it’s because you’ve outgrown your dining room art studio or the studio you rent is in a building that was just put up for sale; if you’re worried you’ll be evicted from your informal live/work space or you’re a small arts organization that needs its own office and studio space; you are in the market for real estate.

”Square Feet” answers the questions Artscape hears most often: How do I go about finding a space? Gross lease, net lease, net-net lease – what’s the difference? Should I consider buying a place? What are my rights as a tenant? This manual answers these questions and many, many more.
