Guest Curated by Raven Davis.

Creative Space Rentals: A Workshop for Municipal Creative Spaces
Time: Mon, 5 November 2018, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST
Location: Central Library, 301 Burnhamthorpe Road West, Mississauga
Join us for an afternoon of learning as we discuss how cities can engage a creative renter audience with their municipal spaces!
Artists and creators are frequently in need of space for rehearsals, performances, meetings and special events. While municipalities often have space available in community centres, parks and libraries, they can go underused or have a reputation for a specific use.
In this half-day workshop, ArtsBuild Ontario will cover how municipalities can define, target and engage a creative renter audience with their spaces. Using examples from the municipal and non-profit arts sector, we will examine mandates for spaces, how to build and grow a renter audience and how to market space rentals to the community. This workshop will also cover the risks involved in renting space, with a focus on operational, financial, and legal risk.
All handouts and presentation materials will be made available to participants following the workshop.
ArtsBuild Ontario has partnered with the Creative City Network of Canada to bring this workshops to the community.
