THRIVING ARTISTS MAKE THRIVING COMMUNITIES

PHOTO: ELIOT KIM

Dear friends, It is our pleasure to share our Annual Report for 2018—a momentous year in the life of Artscape. We hope it gives you a broader sense of our work and impact in 2018. We opened Artscape Daniels Launchpad after a 12-year-long period of research and development. This art and design entrepreneurship hub promises to be a game-changer in empowering artists to make more money; it has already helped double the number of direct beneficiaries of our work. Our resilience was tested in new ways as our team and communities rallied to address a fire at Daniels Spectrum and floods at Artscape Gibraltar Point and Artscape West Queen West. The report is structured around the three goals that are the pillars of our strategic plan: cultivating thriving communities, serving more people and communities, and building organizational resilience. For more details on the plan or how we have defined success and the metrics we are using to measure our progress, please click on the following link:

Artscape Strategic Plan 5.0

While Artscape touches the lives of hundreds of thousands of people each year, the cornerstone of our work continues to be helping artists to thrive. We live in a world where the intensifying urban affordability crisis now poses the biggest threat to culture in global cities and where the gig economy has made earning a living for creatives ever more precarious. These threats to artists also pose serious threats to attracting and retaining talent, visitors and investment. Hundreds of staff, board members and volunteers, and thousands of tenants, members, and owners had a hand in delivering Artscape’s impact in 2018. We look forward to continuing to expand this circle in 2019 and beyond. We invite you to reach out to us if you're interested in building a world that engages artists, culture and creativity as catalysts for community vibrancy, sustainability, prosperity and inclusiveness. There are many opportunities to engage as a donor, volunteer or supporter that we will be happy to talk to you about.

Mission

Artscape makes space for creativity and transforms communities.

Vision

Artscape is committed to building a world that engages artists, culture and creativity as catalysts for community vibrancy, sustainability, prosperity and inclusiveness.

Values

Integrity:

being the best we can be for the world

Community:

engaging diverse people and perspectives in decision-making

Creativity:

channeling resourcefulness, agility, innovation and entrepreneurship

Collaboration:

generating win/win/win partnerships and multiple bottom lines

demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement

Artscape is best known for its work as the developer/operator of a growing portfolio of 13 unique cultural facilities in Toronto—community cultural hubs; multi-purpose creative spaces; artist live/work studio spaces; and 42 performance, exhibition and event spaces.

Artscape’s mission is accomplished through a range of social enterprises focusing on:

real estate development

affordable housing and property management

performance and event facility management, makerspace management

entrepreneurship development

community animation and youth empowerment programming

knowledge transfer, research and consulting services

Since it began in 1986,

Artscape has evolved from an artist studio provider into a leader in “creative placemaking.” This term coined by Artscape has spawned a global field of practice that seeks to leverage the power of art, culture and creativity to be a positive catalyst for community and urban development. Artscape’s approach to creative placemaking engages artists, urban developers, community partners, philanthropists and public policy advocates to advance shared interests and realize shared value. Artscape’s Creative Placemaking Lab builds knowledge and generates innovation in the field. The work of Artscape is managed by a group of related but independent not-for-profit organizations, including Toronto Artscape Inc., Artscape Non-Profit Homes Inc., Toronto Artscape Foundation, Regent Park Arts Non-Profit Development Corporation Inc., and two condominium corporations.

2018 was the first year of our new strategic plan titled Artscape 5.0. Through this report, we are following through on our pledge to let our supporters know about the progress we are making in achieving the following goals:



  • Enhance the framework to help artists thrive
  • Renew Artscape projects
  • Help build strong and vibrant neighbourhoods


  • Expand programs and services
  • Develop new projects
  • Build and share creative placemaking knowledge


  • Strengthen our social enterprises
  • Grow and strengthen our asset base
  • Empower and support our staff and volunteers

CULTIVATING THRIVING COMMUNITIES

HELPING ARTISTS TO THRIVE

At Artscape, we believe that thriving artists help build thriving communities. It is therefore one of the cornerstones of Artscape’s work to create and enhance the conditions for artists to thrive. Affordable space for creators is a key part of the equation, but a great deal more is required for artists and communities to truly flourish. In addition to providing affordable space, Artscape is also engaged in delivering programs and services to support the growth of creative people. Key achievements in 2018 include:

Thriving Artists Initiative and Index

Artscape advanced its commitment to help artists thrive in 2018 through the development of a comprehensive Thriving Artists Index. This self-evaluation framework will help artists gauge three areas of thriving: Financial Prosperity, Artistic Fulfillment and Personal Well-being. Artscape will work with our tenants, owners and members to begin collecting baseline data in 2019.

Affordable Space for Artists

With a growing affordability crisis in Toronto and almost every major city around the world, it is increasingly difficult to find affordable, appropriate space to live and work. Affordable housing is essential to artists facing lower than average incomes typical of a career in the cultural sector. Thanks to innovative partnerships with the City of Toronto and champions in the public and private sectors, Artscape is scaling up opportunities for artists to rent or own affordable live/work studios.

  • Cost Savings: Artscape provided $3.47M in commercial and residential occupancy cost savings (commercial savings: $2.5M, residential savings: $924,000) to artists, arts organizations and local non-profits.
  • Artscape Daniels Launchpad: Opened in November 2018, Artscape Daniels Launchpad is Toronto’s most exciting collaborative space for creative entrepreneurs, where emerging and established artists, designers and creators from all disciplines can succeed like never before. This 30,000+ sq. ft. one-stop hub offers members coworking and meeting spaces, multidisciplinary creative studios featuring state-of-the-art tools and technology, as well as specialized programs and services designed to support artists in generating income and growing their creative practice.
  • Affordable Space for Arts and Culture in Toronto: In May 2018, a new property tax valuation for “Creative Co-Location facilities” was made law by the Government of Ontario. With our peers at 401 Richmond, Artscape launched an advocacy campaign to advance a solution to skyrocketing commercial property taxes that jeopardized cultural hubs. Our proposal for a new tax subclass was met with support from the Province and Toronto City Council. Eligible projects benefit from a 50% property tax reduction, mitigating future increases. We celebrated this win by hosting an event to thank the City for its support for artists in Toronto.
  • Artist Residencies: Artscape Gibraltar Point continued to be a draw in 2018, welcoming nearly 600 artists, writers and musicians via self-directed and thematic residency programs. Participants visited from every continent, excluding the Antarctic!

RENEWING ARTSCAPE COMMUNITIES

Artscape is committed to ensuring that all of its projects remain examples of creative placemaking that are both grounded in strong shared visions and are financial sustainability. Here are some highlights from 2018:

The Power of Community

Social Impact Study

In 2018, Halo Canada was retained to assess the social value and impact of Artscape and our tenants’ work at Daniels Spectrum. The study revealed a social impact of nearly $34M was generated by activities at Daniels Spectrum. Additionally, for every dollar Artscape spends, the Regent Park community receives over $16 in socio-economic benefit.

Management of Unforeseen Issues

The damage experienced last spring at Daniels Spectrum due to a small fire meant that Artscape staff needed to be innovative and nimble to restore operational status following this incident. Both Artscape’s and our tenants’ abilities to deliver programming for the Regent Park community were impacted for several months. Together, we worked tirelessly to rebuild without going into deficit. This incident highlighted our organizational resilience in absorbing and containing unforeseen shocks and disruptions to our social enterprises. Repairs to common areas and tenant suites were completed within a few months of the incident, and Ada Slaight Hall was fully restored by late fall when a replacement telescopic seating system was installed. The restoration following the May 2018 water damage incident has extended the expected service life of many furniture, fixtures and equipment by at least 10 more years.

Artscape advanced its commitment of renewing the vision, capital and operating plans of community cultural hubs by conducting comprehensive building condition reports for all of its properties.

We started the year with a listening tour called Building Momentum, that met with tenants, owners and partners from each building. Based on feedback, we introduced a new position—a concierge—to serve as an ambassador to tenants, owners, visitors and regulars.

PHOTO: NATALIE NGUYEN

We celebrated two significant anniversaries at our community cultural hubs—a five-year anniversary at Artscape Youngplace and a 10-year anniversary of Artscape Wychwood Barns. These two buildings are home to 95 residential, studio, and non-profit tenants and owners who bring art, programming and opportunity daily to two of Toronto’s liveliest neighbourhoods.

HELPING TO BUILD STRONG AND VIBRANT NEIGHBOURHOODS

Artscape facilities help build community by creating a platform for cultural exchange and expression. Notable achievements in 2018 included:

PHOTO: ELIOT KIM

Artscape Value Exchange Program

The Artscape Value Exchange Program was launched in 2016 with 20 new tenants and homeowners. The program promotes giving back to community and neighbourhoods by volunteering monthly.  In 2018, these Artscape families provided over 1,200 hours of volunteer time on projects ranging from community gardens to art lessons.

Hallway Galleries

Our Hallway Galleries at Artscape Youngplace and Daniels Spectrum, both programs of the Toronto Artscape Foundation, featured 156 exhibitions, showcasing the work of dozens of diverse contemporary artists.

In 2018, Daniels Spectrum hosted Yasin Osman as its featured Artist-in-Community. Osman, of Somali heritage, is a lifelong resident of Regent Park and is also an early-childhood educator and photographer. Through the program, Osman was able to showcase his work at Daniels Spectrum in a public exhibition called Dear Ayeeyo, during the annual CONTACT Photography Festival. The exhibit, which received critical acclaim and thousands of visitors, featured large-scale photographs of Osman’s intimate portraits and snapshots, glimpses into lives within the Somali community. Following the exhibition, Osman engaged young artists from Regent Park and surrounding neighborhoods in an innovative community arts project to capture the changing faces of Regent Park families through photography. The exhibition, Faces of Regent Park, was also hosted at Daniels Spectrum during the 2018 performances of The Journey.

Ada Slaight Youth Arts Mentorship Program

Thanks to the support of The Slaight Family Foundation, the Toronto Artscape Foundation has been able to offer community arts programming to a total of 59 youth involved in the Ada Slaight Youth Arts Mentorship Program at Daniels Spectrum. In 2018, nine young artists with skills ranging from performing arts (spoken word, R&B and hip-hop), visual arts and photography participated in the program. Each participant was matched with a mentor in their field of practice, who guided them in building a plan to work toward their creative and career goals. The program is designed to build on the participants’ skills and talents while developing their capacity to build sustainable careers in the arts, through workshops, guest speakers and mentorship.

Artscape Performance and Event Venues

Artscape engaged in further community activation through its social enterprise, Artscape Performance and Event Venues, which last year hosted 1,100 events and 160 performances, drawing thousands of visitors to our spaces across the city and enabling subsidized space rentals for many arts non-profit organizations and grassroots groups.

SERVING MORE PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES

Last year, an estimated 500,000 people visited our cultural hubs and facilities to participate in events, activities and celebrations. In 2018, Artscape opened a first-of-its-kind creative entrepreneurship hub on Toronto’s waterfront, with another three new projects under construction. We also engaged in planning to refocus and build our role as an innovator in creative placemaking, both on the local level and as a key contributor to the global creative placemaking movement.


EXPANDING PROGRAMS AND SERVICES

In 2018, the total number of tenants, members, owners, program participants and clients who benefited directly from and participated in Artscape’s facilities, programs and services increased dramatically.

HXOUSE Partnership

In May 2018, Artscape announced a groundbreaking partnership with the newly formed “next-generation accelerator,” HXOUSE, co-founded by La Mar Taylor, Creative Director of XO Records and The Weeknd, and Ahmed Ismail, Founder of Influencers PR. Last September, HXOUSE opened a multidisciplinary talent incubation space within Artscape Daniels Launchpad and launched the No More Dreams mentorship program to provide support to up-and-coming creative talent in the GTHA.  The program is designed to empower young artists, musicians and directors, especially those in underserved communities, to stop dreaming and start realizing their career ambitions. It provides access to learning, networking, funding, production and partnership opportunities to help accelerate their creative careers. In November, HXOUSE kicked off its new space and programming at Launchpad with Open HXOUSE, two days of panel discussions about crafting visual identity and breaking through in the music industry,  featuring some of the top names in the creative industries. These events attracted over 1,200 people to Launchpad and more than 4 million Twitter viewers.


DEVELOPING NEW PROJECTS

Artscape’s work continued on Artscape Weston Common and Artscape Daniels Launchpad in 2018, and in November, we opened the doors to Launchpad, growing the total number of cultural facilities within Artscape’s portfolio to 13 and welcoming close to 400 members in the first month of operation.

Artscape Daniels Launchpad

Following over 12 years of research, consultation and development last November, Artscape, together with our development partner The Daniels Corporation and close to 1,000 other supporters and stakeholders, celebrated the opening of Artscape Daniels Launchpad. This new model for creative entrepreneurship is intended to help emerging and established artists, designers and creators thrive through their practice like never before. This first-of-its-kind hub for entrepreneurs from a broad spectrum of creative disciplines offers one-stop access to a fully equipped 30,000 sq. ft. facility combining coworking, meeting and creative production studio space with a diverse community of creative collaborators, coaches and mentors providing entrepreneurship skills development programs, workshops, events, and business opportunities.

Artscape Weston Common

In 2018, Artscape got ready to welcome artists to a new community cultural hub and artists’ residence in the heart of the Weston-Mount Dennis community. Opening in spring 2019, this new community cultural hub will build on the neighbourhood’s already abundant creativity and cultural richness, offering a vibrant, central gathering place for people to come together to create, learn and celebrate local art and culture. Artscape will operate the hub providing essential spaces for artists and arts organizations in the community, including program partners, UrbanArts and Shakespeare in Action, who will animate the hub on a daily basis. This community cultural hub will provide indoor and outdoor community programming spaces for year-round community and cultural events, inviting the community in to participate in arts programming, performances and events. Artscape Weston Common will also become home for 26 artists and artist-led families, who will live and work in affordable studios made possible through a partnership with the City of Toronto’s Affordable Housing Office. This project is Artscape’s first cultural hub outside of the downtown core. It was developed in partnership with The Rockport Group as part of a broader community redevelopment project, Weston Common, consisting of 340 rental units, 26 of which are affordable housing units.

Artscape Bayside Lofts

In partnership with the City of Toronto, Hines-Tridel and Waterfront Toronto, Artscape is developing 80 live/work spaces for artists and their families. Located in the East Bayfront District within a larger condo development built to LEED™ Gold standards, these affordable homes are designated as “Affordable Housing” for as long as the units exist.

Artscape Lofts at Waterworks

Artscape has also partnered with Build Toronto, City of Toronto, MOD Developments, and Woodcliffe Landmark Properties to build 15 housing units for artists and their families within an innovative mixed-use development that is revitalizing an historic building in downtown Toronto. The development includes 299 housing units in total, plus a new YMCA, public food hall and space for community organization Eva’s Initiatives for Homeless Youth.


BUILDING AND SHARING CREATIVE PLACEMAKING LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY

Being an artist and making a living takes ingenuity and dogged determination. Today, it is harder than ever to find affordable space to live and create in urban centres. Many cities are in the midst of an unprecedented affordability crisis driven by over-heated real estate markets. In 2016, the World Cities Culture Forum declared this challenge to be one of the biggest threats to culture in global cities. There are no silver-bullet solutions. There are, however, innovative new approaches—and Toronto has been at the forefront of many of them. In 2018, The World Cities Culture Forum engaged Artscape’s Creative Placemaking Lab as its resident expert globally on this issue.Together, we are developing a Making Space for Culture Toolkit to help city builders create a more effective environment in which to develop and protect creative and cultural spaces. To assist with this work, the Lab hosted a study tour, Innovations in Creative Space and Placemaking, in association with the City of Toronto and World Cities Culture Forum, to discuss how global urban developers and city leaders could unlock the creative potential of their communities. The Lab also shared knowledge resources through consulting and advisory services with 40 cities across Canada and around the world.

BUILDING ORGANIZATIONAL RESILIENCE

STRENGTHENING OUR SOCIAL ENTERPRISES

Artscape’s portfolio of creative spaces for artists and arts organizations is an eclectic mix of non-traditional, mixed-use buildings, including some heritage structures. In 2018, we took steps to make our organization more resilient through a number of initiatives with a goal of increasing our operational reserves by 10% by 2022.

PHOTO: ANDRE M.

Portfolio Management Plan

Last year, Artscape adopted a new Portfolio Management Plan to ensure that maintenance, repair and capital investments are planned to improve the conditions of our buildings and support their long-term sustainability. In 2018, Artscape completed in-house assessments and lifecycle forecasts, and determined the scope of required work for each project based on a number of priorities.

PHOTO: MAURICIO CALERO

Stewardship of Our Asset Base

In 2018, Artscape implemented the use of an important asset management metric, the Facility Condition Index (FCI). The FCI is the calculated percentage of work that needs to be completed divided by the replacement value of the facility components not including the property. Artscape conducted building condition assessments for four assets for which it, along with ANPHI, has full responsibility: Artscape West Queen West, Artscape Wychwood Barns, Daniels Spectrum, and Artscape Sandbox. These properties achieved an average FCI of 3%, exceeding the strategic plan target of 15%.

 

Artscape is also working with the City of Toronto, tenants, and local stakeholders on future planning related to two City-owned assets, Artscape Gibraltar Point and the Parkdale Arts and Cultural Centre (PACC).  In 2018, the City of Toronto launched a coordinated planning process for the PACC and four adjacent City-owned sites.  This process will explore the potential for an expanded community hub model that safeguards the existing housing and cultural space in the PACC while assessing ways to meet growing neighbourhood need for community infrastructure and affordable housing, including additional artist live/work housing.

Empowerment of Our Staff and Volunteers

Artscape conducts annual board and staff engagement surveys to track how these key stakeholders are feeling about Artscape. In 2018, the Artscape team comprised 139 passionate and dedicated employees. Survey results in 2018 indicated that while overall engagement remained the same at 68%, staff experienced stress related to the significant amount of time and effort required in opening Launchpad. Management is working on a number of measures to improve our results in this area.
