Often times, freelance photographers need a studio to take pictures in but they cost a lot of money.
Co-founder Nathalie Atanda has felt this pain herself. She wanted to support young artists & entrepreneurs by providing opportunities that she struggled to find when she was starting out.
A creative hub to develop young artists starting while they’re still in school
“A lot of artists feel like if they don’t live in Toronto, they can’t be an artist. There’s lots of opportunity here in Brampton, they just have to find it,” says Atanda.
Additionally, Redwood has a rental space for meetings called, the Redwood Marketplace. In this space, professionals and freelancers can meet with potential clients, host workshops or a pop-up shop and much more.
Atanda is also wary of the fact that young artists and non-profit organizations can have a tough time with money. Going forward, Redwood hopes to eventually run “a non-profit component to provide resources, education, and a creative hub to develop young artists starting while they’re still in school.”
Redwood is hosting a grand opening party on February 5th at 6 p.m. For more details about the party, click here.
