An interview about the challenge for professionnel artists and artisans to find affordable workshops. (30 janvier 2022)
For those who have not seen it yet, a nice article on LESPACEMAKER in the Journal de Montréal this morning, thanks to Camille Dauphinais-Pelletier!
Pssst, we always need help with chores and various committees! It is thanks to a motivated volunteer team that this project is possible. “There are 1000 ways to get involved, people here are really hospitable”. Feel free to write to us and come to the space

A new chapter is being written. We have just received a first payment of $20,000 from PME MTL Centre-Ville for the launch of LESPACEMAKER.
We owe considerable thanks to Jason Prince who was without a doubt the catalyst for our public fundraising efforts. We couldn’t have hoped for a better advisor to represent our project. He instantly understood not only the social value of LESPACEMAKER, but also its character and uniqueness.
On behalf of the entire LESPACEMAKER community, thank you, Jason Prince! Thank you, PME MTL!
This is great news for the Montreal makers community! After more than two years of gestation, we have signed our lease for the coming years.
LESPACEMAKER will be located at 2875 Hochelaga in Centre-Sud, a stone’s throw from the Préfontaine metro station. This first phase of the project guarantees us a space of 15,000 square feet inside and 5,000 square feet outside as of October 1, 2018. A second phase will allow us to expand the site to 30,000 square feet.
