About Artscape YOUNGplace
Artscape YOUNGplace is a multidimensional facility designed to build capacity for creativity and innovation and bring people and ideas together under one roof. It will house a diverse mix of creators working in a variety of disciplines, as well as arts, community and social mission organizations.
Once complete, Artscape YOUNGplace will offer a contemporary art gallery, a theatre training facility, a centre for dance and performance, arts training for youth and adults, music education for amateurs and professionals, family resources to support the local community, openings, performances, exhibitions and events.
Each classroom studio has soaring ceilings, abundant natural light and unique schoolroom finishes. Available studios range in size from 500-1000 sq. ft. and may be used for production, exhibition, education, programming and administrative purposes.
