Toronto Fringe on the move

first_img Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment The Creation Lab opened in September 2011 at the Centre for Social Innovation and has been a place for independent artists of all disciplines to congregate, create and innovate 24 hours a day for highly subsidized rates. Since 2011, 26,706.5 hours of creation time have been rented in the lab.Over the years, key donors and funders have supported the Creation Lab: Neville Austin has been the naming donor for the larger studio since 2011, and the smaller studio was supported from 2011-2013 by Zal Press and from 2013-present by Blake Thorne.New administration office address as of September 1st:The Toronto Fringe688 Richmond Street West, Suite 204 Toronto, ONM6J 1C5For further details contact communications@fringetoronto.com or call 416-966-1062 Twitter It’s a year of big change for the Toronto Fringe! As of September 1st, 2016 our administration office will move to 688 Richmond Street West, Suite 204 from its current location at the Centre for Social Innovation, 720 Bathurst Street.This move also means that our Creation Lab, The Blake Thorne Studio and The Neville Austin Studio, will close temporarily until a more suitable location can be found.“Unfortunately rent increased to a point that made running the labs very difficult,” says Fringe’s Executive Director Kelly Straughan, “We know the closing of the Creation Lab is difficult for artists but at this time we are actively searching for a venue that will allow us to continue to offer creation spaces for as little as $6/hour. We thank the Centre for Social Innovation for five wonderful years- they have been supportive partners and we are sad to leave.” Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisementlast_img
