About Us

The 110 Arts Cooperative was formed in September 2014 by the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival Society, the Touchstone Theatre Society, Music on Main Society and The Documentary Media Society (producers of the annual DOXA Documentary Film Festival.) The Cooperative was formed to manage and govern the cultural amenity facility at #110-750 Hamilton Street.

Our vision for this new cultural space imagines a hub for shared resource, social-profit partnership, creative endeavor, cultural animation and public outreach.

The facility houses the core tenants in an enterprising endeavour to address their common and long-standing administrative/producing needs. It provides a home for the four founders and the broader artistic community – the fifth tenant, as it were.

The space represents much-needed physical resources for the province’s creative ecology, while promoting the merits of artistic incubation and a leadership model for establishing collaborative working environments.

 That facility was officially named The Post at 750 in March 2015. The name was inspired by the history of downtown Vancouver, plotted almost exclusively by 19th Century surveyor Lauchlan Hamilton, who used wooden posts to build the grid for the streets of downtown Vancouver, and named most of them, too! A post is also a structural support, intended to anchor the position of a frame.

The leaders of the new shared Arts space at 750 Hamilton St. had a desire to root their endeavor in the material memory of the land in downtown Vancouver on which the space sits.
