The Creative Spaces Speaker Series 2024 is a pivotal initiative in addressing Calgary’s creative spaces challenge. Developed by the Creative Spaces Community of Practice (CSCoP), and supported by Calgary Arts Development and cSpace Projects, this monthly series will run January – April 2024 and is strategically designed to empower local leaders by sharing invaluable knowledge, fostering community connections, and providing a platform for informed decision-making.

The Creative Spaces Speaker Series 2024 not only addresses the immediate need for knowledge in funding, commercial real estate, legal aspects and risk management, but also serves as a catalyst for a broader solution to Calgary’s creative spaces issue. By providing a platform for information sharing and networking opportunities, this series aims to empower local leaders, fostering a resilient and thriving creative community. Through collaboration and knowledge exchange, we aspire to create a lasting impact on Calgary’s creative landscape.
