Segal Free Space for Artists




Hey, there! How are you? Yeah, we get it. These are pretty tough times for all of us.

With the temporary closure of our industry, it can be hard to find the emotional bandwidth to continue to create and social distancing measures can make it difficult to find the space to collaborate with fellow artists.

While we wait to welcome audiences back to our theatre, the Segal Centre would like to offer our Annex rooms as spaces for artists to work at no cost. In accordance with the CNESST Workplace Sanitary Guidelines, we will be opening up our rehearsal halls to small groups to allow a free space for creation. Are you writing the next Hamilton and need to belt out some tunes? Are you needing a quiet space to explore that interpretive Norwegian dance routine? Are you needing a break from your cats so you can write that really important grant proposal? Well, request your free booking today!

WHO IS THIS FOR
This space is for YOU if you identify as an artist, are over 18, and are looking for space for:

  • Small workshop-level exploration
  • Rehearsal
  • Creation, Writing, Dance, Music
  • Meditation, Relaxation, Motivation
  • Change of scenery
  • Solo practice or coaching and more


WHO IS THIS NOT  FOR 
Companies or organizations looking for space for professional rentals and/or additional support. If this sounds like you, inquire about our rental options.


WHEN ARE THESE SPACES AVAILABLE
Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.

**Due to the new lock-down measures, our Free Artist Space will be unavailable between the dates of December 17th - January 11th, 2021 (subject to change, depending upon the health and safety guidelines). See you in the new year!**
