WHY DO ARTS FACILITIES MATTER?
Facilities are the places where arts and culture happen. Healthy facilities, artistic capability, organizations and finances are the four hallmarks of a thriving arts and culture sector.
Despite their importance, facilities are the most under-resourced component of arts operations. Which is why providing tools and resources to help our arts organizations run sustainable facilities is so important for Ontario’s arts organizations.
“I feel really fortunate that there is an organization like [ArtsBuild Ontario] out there offering a program like the [Arts Facilities Mentoring Network] and couldn’t believe there someone out there trying to help us. I am just really grateful there is an organization like yourselves out there.” – Susan Taylor, Kawartha Art Gallery
“SpaceFinder speeds up the rental process because prospective renters learn all about the space via the listing, which reduces back-and-forth emails or phone tag. It also means only those who are seriously interested in our space will contact us. As a small business, we love every tool that saves us time!” – Andy Chan, Queen Street Yoga
“To achieve the artistic practices, we need a facility that is usable to do that. Asset Planner helps us to decide what we need to do to maintain it.” – Susan Moffat, Tarragon Theatre
