Arts facility/venue managers are invited to attend the SpaceFinder BC “Soft Launch”, a mixer/Q&A event on July 21 to introduce you to a new online tool to link organizations that have space to rent with those who need space.
Many groups in the creative, non-profit and small business communities need space for meeting, creating, rehearsing, presenting, collaborating, gathering or celebrating; they spend considerable resources trying to find the right space to rent. On the flip side, venues spend significant resources trying to find the right renters for their spaces. These might include commercial renters to cross-subsidize non-profit rentals, or it might be renters who fit the venue’s mandate.
The Society to Bridge Arts and Community (The Bridge Society) and the Alliance for Arts + Culture are pleased to be part of the consortium, along with The Post at 750, the Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance, Vancouver Creative Space Society, Playwrights Theatre Centre, and a number of funders, that introduces SpaceFinder BC. Using this online platform, venues can market unbooked rental space by creating a listing and uploading a digital calendar, while artists and the public alike can discover space based on location, price, amenities, and up-to-date availability.
Built by non-profit Fractured Atlas, SpaceFinder BC is free to list and free to search. Initially launching to service the Metro Vancouver area, SpaceFinder BC will eventually serve all of the communities in British Columbia, increasing the visibility of creative workspaces throughout the province.
Managers of arts facilities/venues are invited to join us at The Post at 750 on Thursday, July 21 at 4 p.m. for the SpaceFinder BC "Soft Launch”.
Whether you have recently signed up with SpaceFinder, or you have expressed interest in doing so, or we just think you should, this event is for you!
