Arts Habitat Edmonton continually works towards compiling a living document of every arts space in Edmonton so you can see exactly what is the creative landscape. This project began as a tool to help arts space seekers and developers discover what spaces already exist within our city. Creators need to see if the kind of space they require is available in our community, and if it’s in a feasible location for them. Simultaneously, those looking to develop arts space can get a bird’s eye view of the creative ecology to see what gaps exist that they may fill.
The project has also developed into its own legacy. Often a local sentiment felt among creatives is that there is no room for the arts in Edmonton anymore—all our favourite creation spaces and haunts are closing their doors. Arts Habitat Edmonton will create this map to track the lifespan of arts spaces in Edmonton across time and provide up-to-date data for decision making.
