44 Gaukel is Kitchener’s first and only arts and technology hub. This creative community is the result of a partnership between the Accelerator Centre, a technology incubator dedicated to building and scaling globally-competitive technology and ArtsBuild Ontario, a provincial arts service organization dedicated to realizing long-term solutions for arts and creative spaces.
Bringing together the inventive worlds of tech and the vibrant creativity of Waterloo Region’s local arts and culture sector, 44 Gaukel is an example of innovative space-sharing practice in the Waterloo region and beyond.
44 Gaukel features 10,000 square feet of space shared between the tech makerspaces of the Accelerator Centre, ArtsBuild Ontario and local arts and culture organizations operating in Waterloo Region. 44 Gaukel provides a unique opportunity for artists/organizations to come together with the tech world to create a new creative community, foster cross-sectoral partnerships and be an example of innovative space-sharing practice in the Waterloo region and beyond.
