Our residency at Artscape was incredible! Thank you everyone for giving your time and your skills so generously. I knew you are very good at your jobs; I learned that you are also terrific teachers. We came away from our week with you with renewed excitement and determination to move forward with our project. More importantly, we came away with a clear, specific and achievable plan to reach our goal.
As a consultant and capacity-building partner, Artscape has aided in advancing our collective understanding of the situation for cultural spaces in Vancouver, creating a ‘roadmap’ of policies and programs, engaging with the community, and delivering fantastic learning events for groups with aspirations for space development and operation. The Vancouver real estate scene is tough on artists and cultural groups—when you have a partner like Artscape, the work becomes much richer and more robust—and we can see the positive results.
