Vancouver to convert two industrial buildings into 26,000 square feet of arts space | OpenFile

Really wonderful news for Vancouver artists this week: 

As part of a move to increase studio space in Vancouver, the City will be issuing a request for proposals for the use of 26,300 sq. ft. of new artists’ space at two city-owned industrial warehouses: 16,000 sq. ft. at 251 & 281 Industrial and 10,300 sq. ft. at 2625 & 2629 Kaslo. The leases will be for 3-5 years, with the aim to have tenants in place this winter. The buildings will then be broken up and rented to individual artists, meaning a 100-square-foot space will cost the artist between $70 and $150 per month.

The usual price for a 100 sq. ft. work space in the city is usually around $1000, more than 6 times what these will be offered at. There’s more: 

Meanwhile, the Vancouver Park Board will make six more field houses available to artists for studio space in: Elm ParkFalaise ParkHadden Park, Slocan Park, and Strathcona Park. The board is already accepting applications for those spaces.

That’s not all! 

…an additional 13,000 square feet of studio space will become available over the next few years at three recently approved developments, including 20 studios in a 10,000-square-foot space at 1265 Howe Street.

I can’t tell you how great it is to read this news, in a city that’s so expensive that artists have been leaving in droves. Nothing is ready to view yet, but I’ll be keeping an eye on this to see how it develops. I am really impressed with the city for doing this, and anxious to see what happens next.

If so, come check out the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival! Well-known creators like Ryan Pequin, Tony Cliff (pictured above.. well, not HIM, but his work, duh!), Angela Melick, Ed Brisson, and Rebecca Dart will be in attendance. I will be there too, fawning over them and many others like a well-meaning fanboy! Sweet!

comic about moving to vancouver from seattle and getting to know a new place.  page 2 of 2.

Yep, I hear ya. It takes patience to peel some of these layers away from the city. Vancouver has an awkwardness and aloofness and… something… it’s hard to nail down. But I must say Takohako really gets it in this strip, and is also smart enough to know there’s more going on, and that it may take time.
Just remember, on some days that weirdness suddenly melts away, and it’s like you’re momentarily in one of the most amazing places ever. The city is young and very shy, and you have to coax it to come out of its shell sometimes.

University of British Columbia Campus by James Hill, another grand Maclean’s magazine cover image from the 1950s. Published March 31, 1956, it depicts the hustle and bustle of the end of the school year, but could just as easily be applied to the end of the fall semester. This blog post (and comment stream) is a testament to his career, and an impressive body of his illustrations can be seen in this photoset. [More…]

I was tickled to stumbled onto this tonight. PAL (the Performing Arts Lodge) is a retirement community for people in the performing arts: actors, musicians, dancers, stagehands, etc… Retirees living here are still working and keeping busy in the arts (there’s a full theatre on the top floor, and there’s always something happening there). Let’s face it, artists never retire. I visited last week and I want to go more often, maybe organize some art shows there.

Imagine a place like this for visual artists.
