Collective Space Location/Directions
Location: Collective Space is on the subway line, totally accessible but tucked away enough to feel like a bit of a secret. From the Lansdowne subway walk west on the south side of Bloor, under the bridge. Take your 2nd left on Ruttan, next left on Merchant Laneand then 1st right along the warehouse building. We are at the south east end. The door has an awning that says Raw Space
