Creative Space Case Studies Project

The Creative Space Case Studies Project features 20 case studies inspired by creative spaces across Ontario that have executed a capital project or renovation. ArtsBuild Ontario will be interviewing each organization between 2018 – 2020 to develop in-depth case studies and a best practice summary that will identify key elements that resulted in each new build/renovation and ongoing operations. The best practice summary will be made available once all 20 case studies have been completed.

We will also be presenting 10 webinars that highlight some of the projects featured in the case studies. You can see upcoming webinars on the Learning Series webpage.

The goal of these case studies is to provide specific details on each creative space project. We hope to enable organizations in understanding what resource and support they might need to execute projects and sustain their creative spaces.

All case studies and best practice summary will be made available online, in both French and English, and in accessible formats, for free access.
