The arts hub at cSPACE is home to three Instagram worthy public art pieces. Your clients will love the inspiring vibe from the art-filled hallways, with new exhibitons rotating continually. 

About

 cSPACE is a playground for creativity, community and collaboration.

An arts hub, innovative venue and coworking space for Calgary to experiment, explore and spark change. cSPACE provides Calgary’s most unique venue rental opportunities. Located in a vibrant, arts-friendly neighbourhood near downtown, cSPACE merges century-old historic fabric, leading edge technology and a vital community of creatives to offer Calgary’s most distinctive event, meeting and exhibition spaces.

Studio Theatre (Max Occupancy 200)
Purpose-built to support multiple artistic disciplines and event uses, the Studio Theatre is contemporary, unusual and versatile – a highly adaptable, technically sophisticated and beautiful rehearsal, performance and event venue that converts from a double-storey, light-filled hall to a fully-darkened, theatre space…and everything in between! With a maximum standing capacity of 200 (130 with liqour license), the 2,000 sq ft, sprung-floor space is equipped with a complete sound and theatrical lighting system. Retractable seating for 60, an acoustic partition wall and additional support spaces provides immense flexibility at an intimate scale. Ideal for art exhibition, film screenings, theatre, dance, music, gala, reception, banquet, market, and conference use.

Hallway Galleries (Levels 1, 2, 3, 4)
School hallways and secret hideaways have always been where the action happens in grade school! Where King Edward Schooll’s former students used to build friendships, talk freely and have fun, we have reimagined these voluminous hallways as unique opportunities for showcasing art, both to creative peers and the public. These unique character spaces have 13’ high-ceilings, gorgeous historic architectural features, fibre connectivity, professional gallery hanging and programmable lighting. Woven together by an inspiring glass-enclosed staircase and fully accessible or rented individually, these alternative exhibition and event venues provide affordable options for artist shows, openings, art markets and receptions.

RGO Treehouse (Max Occupancy 60)
We know that inspiring spaces help ignite creativity and we have a gathering place like no other in Calgary. If mountain views, an expansive outdoor deck and a funky arts vibe works as a backdrop, the top-floor Treehouse delivers a unique playground for your ideas. Fully open, the 1,160 sq ft has a maximum capacity of 60. Sliding glass doors easily convert the facility into two classroom/conference spaces on each side of a central flex area. Expansive natural light, stunning city views, raised floors, kitchen access and full AV equipment makes the RGO Treehouse ideal for board retreats, small conferences, team building, launch parties, fundraisers, and AGMs.

ArtPark + ArtYard
Managed by cSPACE in partnership with the City of Calgary, the ArtPark provides an outdoor space that is unique, dare we say, in the world. In addition to having the restored heritage school as a backdrop, the park design includes amazing public art by local YYC artists and is inspired by King Edward VII’s family tartan (no looking!). Purpose built with festival infrastructure, ArtPark is ideal for small outdoor performances, public markets, film screenings and, paired with the ArtCubes, provides an unparalleled outdoor canvas for the imagination.
