The Regent Park Arts and Cultural Centre, renamed Daniels Spectrum at its opening in September 2012, provides performance, rehearsal, and community space for grass-roots organizations dedicated to artistic, cultural, social innovation. Artscape manages the facility and has been instrumental in planning since its inception. The adjacent Paintbox condominium is integrated with this new arts community, with its amenity spaces fostering performance, visual, and culinary arts. Informed by community input from the start, Daniels Spectrum is now a community cultural hub and destination in the city for performance and popular event space.
