Event Details

Join Artscape for the second of its 2013 webinar series, “Making Space for Creativity: Designing for Collaboration”. Learn how three projects of different scales have successfully become centres for collaboration.

Join Artscape’s Pru Robey, Director, Creative Placemaking Lab for a discussion with Joe Lobko, architect of innovative new collaborative centres such as Evergreen Brickworks and Artscape Wychwood Barns, and Jay Dodge, founding member of Vancouver’s Progress Lab 1422 for a discussion of new ways to think about designing collaborative creative and cultural infrastructure.

Emerging creative and cultural practice has placed an increased emphasis on collaborative, cross-sector and multi-platform approaches to creation, production and distribution. Much of this is driven by the potential of new “technologies of collaboration”. What were once considered set-in-stone distinctions between not-for-profit and for-profit cultural and creative enterprises are now increasingly unclear. At the same time, creative practitioners are more and more interested in crossing disciplinary and generational boundaries in their work.

Collaboration and convergence across cultural, creative and environmental spheres means that we need to think about our cultural and creative infrastructure in new ways. As new models and new combinations emerge, the ways in which cultural activity is organized and the sorts of cultural spaces that are required is also evolving.

The session will feature short presentations by our panelists, followed by a facilitated discussion and Q+A session.

This webinar will answer questions such as:

  • What are the challenges in designing shared spaces from both an architect’s and practitioner’s perspective?
  • What design aspects are important when creating a collaborative space?
  • How can collaborative space work on different scales and budgets? 

This event is being offered as part of a FREE Artscape webinar series, "New Models for Cultural Space Development". Powered by Artscape, in partnership with ArtsBuild Ontario.
