SpaceFinder Manitoba: List a space. Find a space. For free.

SpaceFinder Manitoba

A matchmaking tool for renters looking for creative space & spaces looking to promote their rentals.

ACI Manitoba, in partnership with ArtsBuild Ontario, and Fractured Atlas, is bringing SpaceFinder Manitoba to Winnipeg and Manitoba in September 2016.

SpaceFinder is a proven technology created and developed by Fractured Atlas, a US non-profit arts service organization. This online marketplace links organizations that have space to rent with those who need space. Our goal is to help organizations (community, volunteer, non-profit, etc.) and venues efficiently find suitable users for their under-used space through this online tool. SpaceFinder Manitoba is free to list, free to search.

Many groups in the creative, non-profit and small business communities need space for meeting, creating, rehearsing, presenting, collaborating, gathering or celebrating. They spend considerable resources trying to find suitable and affordable spaces.

On the flip side, venues spend significant resources trying to find the right renters for their spaces. These might include commercial renters to cross-subsidize non-profit rentals, or it might be renters who fit the venue’s mandate (e.g., youth and education).
