Shared Spaces: From Idea to Implementation

Join us at 10 Carden on December 1st for an amazing interactive workshop on shared spaces!

Shared workspaces are transforming collaboration in the nonprofit and social change sectors. In this session, Eli Malinsky provides a broad overview of the field and reveals the ingredients behind the Centre for Social Innovation’s success. We’ll dig into the tips, warnings and lessons learned from six years of operation. Our goal is to arm you with a clear understanding of the key ingredients of successful shared spaces and explore the “developmental path” to bring your ideas from concept to completion.

The Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) in Toronto is a shared workspace and community centre for individuals and organizations that are changing the world. With over 20,000 annual visitors and over 200 members, CSI is an internationally recognized leader in the creation and animation of shared workspaces. In winter 2010-11, the Centre for Social Innovation will open the doors to its newest project: a 35,000 sq ft building that will become home to over 300 social change projects.
