Request for Proposals: Office Partner

C-Space is looking for a resident company interested in joining Progress Lab 1422 for our next phase of growth. We welcome submissions from all companies and individuals. At the moment, we are have office space to lease but cannot guarantee studio weeks. Our choice will be based on shared values, use of space and ability to commit to a multi-year lease. 

Join Progress Lab 1422

C-space is seeking an engaged organization or artist who has the capacity to run their own vibrant company while contributing to the collective through membership on the C-Space board. If you are looking for stable office space and would benefit from regular access to Progress Lab facilities, we would like to hear from you.

Send us a one page letter and tell us: about your company, how much space you need, how soon you need office/studio space, how you will use the studio, why you’d like to become a resident company and anything else we should know.

Please email your proposal to progresslab1422@c-space.ca with the subject line “PL Proposal” and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to view Progress Lab 1422. We are accepting proposals on a rolling basis but only have 1 spot left to fill in our space.
We encourage submissions from everyone regardless of practice, need or background. If this process presents any barriers for you, please reach out in a way that works for you and we can begin a conversation. We are eager to meet you.
