GigSpace board of directors and their project manager have been exploring partnership ideas with Ottawa Community Housing. If plans continue to move forward in this area we hope to collaborate on a multi-tenant arts hub.
This idea would house a new and slightly larger GigSpace performance venue, and include a large front foyer to warmly welcome everyone, provide bar and coffee service, and most importantly have room to sit and hang before and after performances as well as throughout the day!
The arts hub would also include Alcorn Music Studios music school and a variety of local arts organizations to be determined through expression of interest forms – we are currently working on the template for these forms.
And in the best case scenario this arts hub would form the base of an apartment unit featuring apartments designed for active older adults who are interested in living in a vibrant arts community where they can study, hang out and attend concerts.
We are excited how about you?
