After sitting vacant for more than a decade, the former Shaw Street School at 180 Shaw Street has undergone a $17 million transformation to become a new community cultural hub. Known as Artscape Youngplace, it will soon be the largest cultural institution in the West Queen West area, one of the country’s most creative neighbourhoods and a major centre for contemporary art in Canada.
Please visit me in my new studio, as the doors are finally flung open and the neighbourhood, the tenants, their friends, colleagues and families are invited in, for one exciting evening, to rediscover this new old building. Be nosey, snoop around the hallways and meet the other artists, designers, dancers, photographers, musicians, actors, curators, film and videographers who call Artscape Youngplace their new workspace.
