The Leeway | Studio + Community

Grow your practice in a multi-disciplinary, resourced studio space for artists and designers.

The Leeway is a community studio space where artists and designers can explore new techniques, work among peers and learn from experienced instructors through demonstrations and workshops. Access to professional equipment, tools and materials as well as support from knowledgeable technicians allows Leeway members the freedom to experiment and create.

The Leeway is an ideal place for artists and designers to cultivate their creative practice within the Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
