For collaboration. For learning. And most importantly, for
incubating new ideas, innovations and approaches. Join us
and see what happens when creative minds come together.
Located directly across from new City Hall, 10 Carden is a
new not-for-profit enterprise. It's a shared office space
and a great presentation venue. It's a small business
incubator serving for-profit AND not-for-profit organizations.
It's a "community hub". It's a space we want you to see.
As the project gears up for launch, we are having three public
information sessions. The purpose of the sessions is to
introduce you to the space, discuss our vision for the space and gather input
regarding your specific needs. A rate card and membership
agreements will be available at the public meetings. Space rentals are available immediately, and co-working space usage commencing on January 1st, 2009.

10 Carden sounds interesting - how does it work?
10 Carden will be geared primarily towards those working
in the "social change" sector. This is broadly defined as those working to make our city and/or world a better place
(as well as those interested in supporting such work.)
Members of the facility will be able to drop in on a casual
or regular basis and work in a flexible and comfortable space.
Wireless internet, printing, photocopying, voicemail, post-mail
service, file storage, coffee/tea and other office amenities
are all part of the package.
The flexible space at 10 Carden is the ideal location for
board meetings, workshops and large presentations, smaller
scale meetings and working sessions of 5-6 people, as well
as collaborative and individual work. You can tailor use of
the space to your specific needs.
Who can use 10 Carden?
10 Carden is ideal for individuals, not-for-profits, businesses
and groups. The Guelph Civic League will be a key tenant. Several
others have already joined. You should be next. We envision all
kinds of citizens - researchers, professionals, artists, freelancers,
consultants, writers, students, mentors and volunteers working
side by side. There is an infinite potential for collaboration. The benefits are endless.
What are the costs?
You'll pay a membership and then a monthly fee based on your
anticipated uses and individual needs. OR you can pay as you go for
hot desk or meeting space only. The membership and monthly space sharing fees will be confirmed at the
information sessions and start as low as $20.00 per month.
Members also receive greatly reduced rates on the full space bookings
(for evening and weekend events). Guelph Civic League members will also receive a $10.00 discount on their 10 Carden membership.
10 Carden will be great for Guelph.
There's already a proven model - the Centre for Social
Innovation in Toronto. It's a fabulous
concept that was quickly embraced by the social change community
in Toronto. The same will happen here. Find out how you can be a part of it.
