We believe that there is a symbiotic relationship between thriving artists and thriving communities. The core of our work focuses on developing real estate projects, programs and services to empower artists and connect them to communities.
As a not-for-profit organization based in Toronto, we collaborate with artists, community leaders, public policy advocates, philanthropists and urban developers, so that our work builds value for everybody.
In 2006, we coined the term “creative placemaking” to describe what we do. Today, there is a global community of practice involved in creative placemaking that seeks to leverage the power of arts and culture as a catalyst for cultural, community and urban development.
