Artscape D.I.Y

Resource for creative placemaking

Artscape D.I.Y offers tools and resources to help people develop and deliver sustainable, affordable space for culture and creativity.

The project has been developed by Artscape, who have 29 years experience developing an impressive portfolio of buildings in Toronto, covering around 400,000 sq.ft of space that includes community cultural hubs, affordable live/work spaces and event spaces. Their approach is based on creative urban development that delivers a quadruple bottom line – cultural, economic, social and environmental – and allows them to regenerate areas of the city while keeping long-term debt to a minimum and not being reliant on operating subsidies.

They are committed to sharing their experience and helping projects in cities around the world by providing a great mix of guides, videos, webinars, templates and case studies on their website, here
