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, Artscape has become recognized as an award-winning international 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 creative space innovators. Our success is driven by our ability to work effectively across disciplines to align values, leadership, investment and public policy. We are strategically committed to expanding our portfolio, sharing our expertise and advancing a community of practice around creative placemaking by offering training, mentoring and coaching, and learning opportunities.
