What is SpaceFinder Waterloo Region? It’s a FREE online directory of venues and creative spaces in the community available to rent. It’s a matchmaking tool for renters looking for creative space and spaces looking to promote their rentals.
We are looking for spaces such as galleries, cafés, yoga studios, sacred spaces, theatres, dance studios and others that rent their spaces for creative uses to join a community of local venues on SpaceFinder. SpaceFinder is a “go to” site for artists, creative types and event planners looking for unique space to rent.
SpaceFinder is active in Toronto and Hamilton, and will be launched in Alberta, BC and Winnipeg by Fall 2016 – Waterloo Region is the first Regional SpaceFinder site in North America.
Listing your space on SpaceFinder gives your space exposure to new audiences AND more revenue potential.
What you need to sign up your space:
- Description and details of your space
- Pictures of your space (iPhone photos are great!)
- Rental policies (if you have)
- Contact information

Who is bringing SpaceFinder to Waterloo Region?
ArtsBuild Ontario has worked hard to secure funds and partners to make this resource available in Waterloo Region. Regional partners including City of Kitchener, City of Cambridge, City of Waterloo and the Region of Waterloo are supporting this tool for the creative community because they understand the need for artists to find affordable space, and for spaces to reach potential renters.
This project is supported by Department of Canadian Heritage and Ontario Trillium Foundation.
