Welcome to 44 Gaukel!


ArtsBuild Ontario is thrilled to be a part of the new arts and technology hub at 44 Gaukel, in the heart of Downtown Kitchener. This new creative community is run in partnership with the Accelerator Centre, a technology incubator dedicated to building and scaling sustainable, globally competitive technology. The facility is supported in part by the City of Kitchener. This partnership represents a great opportunity to bring together the inventive world of tech and the vibrant creativity of the arts sector – and we anticipate wonderful innovations to come!

44 Gaukel features 10,000 square feet of space shared between the tech makerspaces of the Accelerator Centre, ArtsBuild Ontario and local arts and culture organizations operating in Waterloo Region. 44 Gaukel provides a unique opportunity for artists/organizations to come together with the tech world to create a new creative community, foster cross-sectoral partnerships and be an example of innovative space-sharing practice in the Waterloo region and beyond.
