In delivering on our mission we provide the conditions that diverse communities of creatives need to remain vital, sustainable and innovative while generating dividends for Calgarians across the city:
Shared Space – Affordable, flexible and inspiring spaces that are responsive to the evolving needs of new artistic practices, missions and enterprises while delivering unique gathering places for all Calgarians

Knowledge Sharing – Specialized workshops, services and peer-to-peer mentorship focused on nurturing creative entrepreneurship, building confidence in artists, designers and makers to generate innovative cultural products and experiences for Calgary and the world.
and the innovation this unlocks – we seek out diverse and meaningful partnerships to shape our projects
and the transformative power of engaged citizens – we connect creativity and community for the benefit of both
and the culture that fosters it – we cultivate a wide view of sustainability to amplify our impact
and the conditions that enable it to flourish – we rethink space as a platform for creative purpose
