We are always looking for established and emerging artists and educators to organize workshops at our space at the Creative City Centre! If you have a great workshop idea in the back of your mind that revolves around reuse, recycling, and eco art, please read on!

Workshop Benefits

  • Free Space: we will provide space free of cost to the workshop host (no rental fee required).
  • Small Workshop Size: we can accommodate up to 20 people in our space for an artist talk or non-participatory workshop or 10 people actively working at tables.
  • Advertising: we will post about your event on our blog and Facebook to help you reach new audiences for your workshop.
  • Free Supplies: workshop hosts will receive $10 worth of materials at the conclusion of their workshop (valued upwards of $50+ retail in second hand art materials). 
  • Accessible Program: All fees collected will be used solely for necessary material purchases required for the workshop. The goal is to make most workshops free to attend whenever possible to keep these workshops inclusive.
