Artscape is a not-for-profit organization that
makes space for creativity and transforms communities.
15 years ago, Artscape set out to help anchor the arts community in the West Queen West neighbourhood. Since then, we have embarked on a number of initiatives to increase Toronto’s capacity to support the growth of local culture. Today, Artscape is making a significant investment to renovate the 75,000 sq. ft. Shaw Street School structure and transform it into Artscape YOUNGplace, with the scope of work estimated to be $13. The Artscape Foundation, Artscape’s registered charity needs to raise $5M to complete the Centre.
TAKE PART and support the development of space for theatre training, a centre for dance and performance, papermaking skills programs, community-based multi-media workshops, arts training for youth, music education for amateurs and professionals, and family resources to support the local community.
