We are pleased to inform you of the official confirmation that LESPACEMAKER has benefited from the Soutien à la rénovation de bâtiments accueillant des ateliers d’artistes program administered by the City of Montreal. This major financial contribution in the form of a grant will enable us to put into action the renovation plan for Phase A, as well as the expansion of Phases B and C. This announcement also marks the start of the official financing process for the acquisition of the building.
To find out more and have your say on what’s next, we invite you to a Grande Soirée d’information publique on July 20, during which we’ll present the current state of affairs. This will be the time to ask your questions, to reflect together on the future of the workshop and to confirm your involvement in the various action committees (governance, socio-financing, solidarity bonds, etc.).
