How to Hub: Community Hub Development Forum

Think that your community needs a hub but don't know what to do? This event is for you!

Community hubs are an important part to building strong neighbourhoods. They bring many different services together under one roof and make them accessible. Most importantly, local residents are the backbone to community hubs. They play a vital role in determining what the hub looks like and how it operates.

So, what can you do to support the development of a community hub in your neighbourhood?

On Saturday, September 29, the SPACE Coalition is holding a full-day introductory workshop on community hubs. This forum will be designed to support residents in navigating the hub development process and advocating for a hub in their community.

Some of the topics that will be covered include:

  • Pop-up infrastructure, an innovative and flexible model for getting community space
  • Developing and communicating your vision
  • Assessing the assets and needs of your community

Plus, you will have the chance to review and provide feedback on the SPACE Coalition’s How to Hub Toolkit, covering a wide-range of topics.

Many thanks to the City of Toronto for providing funding for this event.

Light refreshments, lunch and tokens will be provided.
