An "Air BnB" for Artists: SpaceFinder launches inWaterloo at Amplify 2016
ArtsBuild Ontario is pleased to announce the launch of SpaceFinder Waterloo Region to artists and creative spaces in the City of Waterloo on Oct. 26, 2016 at Amplify - a full day summit, organized by the City of Waterloo, that celebrates creativity and innovation in the region.
SpaceFinder offers a large-scale solution for artists and creative spaces for Waterloo’s creative community. Billed as an “Air BnB” for artists, SpaceFinder is a free online tool for artists to search for space, and for creative spaces to promote their rentals. SpaceFinder is designed to help increase the visibility of creative space, helping artists easily find space, and helping venues promote their under-utilized rental space. And unlike other rental sites, users do not pay any booking or search fees to use SpaceFinder Waterloo Region.
Created by Fractured Atlas, a non
profit arts service organization based in New York,
ine service that enables
venues to market their spaces by creating listings with
photos, rental rates and equipment, and uploading a digital calendar to the website.
Artists and renters
can search for creative workspaces that meet their needs based
on location, price, amenities and up
ArtsBuild has partnered with the City of Kitchener, City of Waterloo, City of Cambridge
and the Region of Waterloo, to bring this tool to the community.
Waterloo creative spaces currently listed on the site include: Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery, Seven Shores Café, Princess Cinemas, KW Little Theatre…even an Aircraft Hangar to name just a few.
SpaceFinder Waterloo Region officially launches to artists in Waterloo on Oct. 26 at Creative Waterloo’s Amplify 2016. ArtsBuild Ontario will be presenting SpaceFinder at 4:25pm during a Peer-to-Peer session at Amplify under the topic of innovation at the day long event.
