CULTURE-LED REGENERATION PROGRAM

In its 3rd year, Artscape’s CULTURE-LED REGENERATION PROGRAM is a national workshop series focused on building the organizational and leadership capacity of communities to engage art, culture and creativity in revitalization efforts.

Artscape brings together top practitioners from around the world for a comprehensive learning experience that demystifies the complexity of culture-led regeneration. Intensive workshops will connect participants with similar-minded practitioners, innovative leaders and catalytic projects that capitalize on the synergies between creative people, unique places and cross-sector collaboration.

Our recent Creative Spacemaking Workshop on June 7 - 8 in Hamilton, Ontario was a resounding success, convening an intimate, diverse group of over 40 participants hailing from 17 different municipalities across Ontario and outside of the province. Ranging in both sector and interest, enthusiastic delegates and faculty exchanged hands-on learning experiences over 2 days of interactive discussions, inspiring local site tours and extensive ìhow toî curriculum on developing and sustaining creative communities within affordable and dynamic spaces.
