Creative Blueprint was officially launched by Ashley Proctor in 2006, and is now managing locations in Toronto, ON, Seattle, WA and Vancouver, BC. The company was originally designed to assist emerging artists and entrepreneurs in navigating self-employment.
Creative Blueprint operates as an artist-run hybrid social enterprise, offering clients a flexible management model and exhibition space while providing a full range of professional services, supports and collaborative studio facilities.
Creative Blueprint’s mission is to inspire and empower creatively, and we are committed to developing sustainable foundations, facilities, organizations and programs that allow independent workers to maintain their creative vision, nourish the entrepreneurial spirit, and develop a rewarding practice.
