Office and Studio Space now available at Progress Lab 1422


Vancouver Creative Space


 In 2009, a dream between four kindred theatre organizations was realized when Boca Del Lupo, Electric Company, Neworld and Rumble opened Progress Lab 1422, a centre for creation and development in East Vancouver. With a deeply-felt spirit of collaboration, community and resource-sharing, an innovative and co-operative joint venture was forged. These companies formed C-Space to collectively guide Progress Lab.

After 10 years of development, C-Space is innovating again to make room for more resident companies. We are putting out this Request For Proposals for potential companies to join us in bringing Progress lab into its next phase of growth. We welcome submissions from all companies and individuals for a range of tenancy packages. We will be assembling the new core companies based on shared values, use of space and ability to commit to a multi year lease.

C-space is seeking engaged organizations who have the capacity to run their own vibrant company while contributing to the collective through membership on the C-Space board. If you are looking for stable office space and would benefit from regular access to Progress Lab facilities, we would like to hear from you.

Send us a one page letter and tell us:

  • About your company.

  • How much space you need?

  • How soon do you need office/studio space?

  • How you will use the studio?

  • Why would you like to become a resident company?

  • Anything else we should know?

Please Email your proposal to progresslab1422@c-space.ca  by Friday April 12 with the subject line “PL Proposal” and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to view Progress Lab 1422.

We encourage submissions from everyone regardless of practice, need or background. If this process presents any barriers for you, please reach out in a way that works for you and we can begin a conversation.

We are eager to meet you.
