29 tenants sign on at cSPACE 'arts incubator' in Calgary's old King Edward School

Dubbed cSPACE, the conversion of the century-old sandstone school has been in the works for years, and is now approaching completion.

President and CEO Reid Henry describes the undertaking as a "social enterprise" designed to "address a longstanding need of space for the arts, culture and creative sector."
