Artscape is a not-for-profit urban development organization that makes space for creativity and transforms communities.

Artscape develops and manages unique multi-tenant facilities that deliver sustainable and below-market production, rehearsal, exhibition and living space for artists, creative practitioners, entrepreneurs and cultural organizations. Since 1986, we have helped to stimulate some of Toronto’s most creative and vibrant neighbourhoods with dynamic community assets and cultural hubs such as Daniels Spectrum in Regent Park, Artscape Wychwood Barns, Artscape Distillery Studios, Artscape Gibraltar Point and multiple projects in West Queen West and Parkdale.

Artscape is widely recognized as an international leader in creative placemaking, a practice that leverages the power of art, culture and creativity to catalyze change, growth and transformation of communities. Our success is driven by our ability to work effectively across disciplines to align values, leadership, investment and public policy. We work constantly to expand our portfolio, share our expertise and advance the field, offering training, mentoring and coaching, and learning opportunities through our Creative Placemaking Lab and tools and resources on the Artscape D.I.Y. website.
