Community Nights takes place every Tuesday from 4:00-10:00pm. It provides artists and art groups with the opportunity to access spaces at Eighth & Eight Creative Spaces at the Massey Theatre Complex for FREE. We are offering a maximum of two-hour blocks for each artist/group to build their creative projects and hone their artistic skills in a supportive, barrier-free environment.
Upon utilizing studio spaces, all participating groups will be asked to participate in a maximum of two free public events or forms of public engagement (e.g., workshop, talk) at Eighth & Eight Creative Spaces. More details will follow.

- Host the events with the same group of attending members each week.

Testimonial from Lois Warwick from Foolish Productions, a performing art collective:
“Community nights at Massey theatre has been a godsend. This year I started a theatre collective and the ability to use such wonderful spaces for free to create art has been incredibly helpful. All of the Foolish Production team loved the time we spent this last spring, coming together once a week for meetings, auditions and rehearsals alike. The team is so understanding and accommodating. I highly recommend this opportunity to any and all artists in the lower mainland and hope other art center’s are taking notice of the amazing work Massey is doing.”
