Resources for Finding a Space

Whether you are holding auditions, looking for rehearsal space, hosting a play reading, or looking for a venue to put on your production, you will need a space! Here are some great tools and platforms for finding space across Canada.


  • AccessTO is a not for profit organization that helps you find a space that suits all your needs including accessibility and highlights a barrier-free Toronto. 
  • Artscape - Artists and not for profit arts organizations can benefit from Artscape's "Community Access Fund" to assist in accessing affordable event space. Artscape also provides opportunities for below-market studio spaces for long-term rental, artist residencies, subsidized or below-market live/work rentals, and affordable live/work home ownership opportunities.
