Background

ArtsHub 118 is Edmonton’s first affordable housing co-op for artists and was funded with a $2.4 million grant from the Cornerstones Program. The project was to help increase the supply of local affordable housing and help the City of Edmonton and the Alberta Avenue community in their joint efforts to revitalize the 118th Avenue area.

On June 30, 2011, Arts Habitat, along with partners Edmonton Inner City Housing Society, Arts Habitat and Artists Urban Village, celebrated the official opening of ArtsHub 118 Housing Cooperative!

I feel very privileged to live in Arts Hub 118. We are located in a neighbourhood that is green with potential and beginning to bud. It does not surprise me that artists have gravitated to an area that many others would avoid, because we love to re-imagine things and create beauty.
