City of Edmonton Arts Space Planning
The proposed project examines the relationship between the City of Edmonton and arts space (re)development by arts and cultural organizations, asking: Can the relationship be improved? If so, how? Relying on a document analysis and semi-structured interviews with government actors and arts organizations, the objective is to better understand municipal governance structures and processes of relevance to organizations (re)developing arts space in Edmonton. The research will enable Arts Habitat Edmonton to better assist organizations undergoing these processes. It will also provide the foundation for recommendations to improve the experience of arts space managers and developers aiming to provide accessible arts spaces.
