APPLICATIONS FOR
WINTER 2020
DUE DECEMBER 2

Workman Arts members are invited to apply for studio spaces for the period of July – December & February – June. The studio hours are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00-5:00 as well as Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00-7:00. 

The studios are semi-private studio spaces in larger shared environments. Each accepted artist will have a dedicated space that includes a storage box you can lock (for work in process, supplies or gear), a table, chair, power source and easel (if required). 

The main shared spaces will still be used for classes, member initiatives, rehearsals, other meetings and occasional events. Incubator Studios are intended for quiet, dedicated studio use.

Note that our current building is sadly not wheelchair accessible (and will remain so until construction is complete on our new building at CAMH in 2020).

Members of Workman Arts are eligible for free rehearsal studio space in our Theatre and Lower Hall. Both spaces are approximately 1000 square feet. Access to gear is also available for rehearsals (please see equipment list above).

If you are interested in booking rehearsal space, please contact a Workman Arts staff member.

Please note that all studios are shared spaces with other artists. Those using rehearsal space should have transparent communication with others using the space in regards to sound, light and content being explored.
