W2 Community Media Art Society is an artist-run centre in Vancouver’s inner-city that works for cross-cultural dialogue, social inclusion, and breaking the digital divide. W2 provides marginalized communities with access to gear, training, multi-platform production and distribution. W2 is committed to community cultural and economic development in the Downtown Eastside – without displacement of low-income residents.

W2 operates W2 Storyeum as a festival, conference and exhibition venue for the benefit of the citizens of Vancouver. The 31,000 sq ft complex features a large exhibition space, Community Media Lab, W2 Cafe catering, Sound Lab, Woodward’s Heritage Letterpress, W2 and community offices, and W2 storage.

W2 is opening a community media centre in March 2011 – which has been in development since 2004. With construction nearing completion in the Woodward’s heritage building, we are preparing to occupy 8,800 sq ft of space for W2 Cafe, a community radio and TV station, community meeting rooms, Open Web Lab, Fearless City Mobile, Creative Technology Incubator, Woodward’s Heritage Letterpress Studio, and a community lounge.

Our W2 administration is located in the Woodward’s Atrium at 250 – 111 W Hastings, Vancouver BC V6B 1H4. Phone 604-689-9896
