What is FLEET?

Responding to the loss of arts and culture hubs across Vancouver, FLEET is a multi-year project that is planning, designing, and constructing a FLEET of moveable studios for working artists. This project will place these studios on a temporary basis throughout the Lower Mainland and manage their ongoing use.

Collaborative work that led to the construction of the first two FLEET Studios included surveys and consultations within Vancouver arts and cultural communities including ongoing conversations with xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, səlilwətaɬ and Urban Indigenous artists, curators, and designers.

Construction of FLEET studios is currently underway on Granville Island. To stay updated about construction progress and programming, please sign up for the FLEET newsletter.


Many hands went into making FLEET areality, with special acknowledgement to:

Other Sights Producers: Colin Griffiths, Marko Simcic, Barbara Cole, Lorna Brown, Jay Pahre, Sunshine Frère

FLEET Working Group includes Other Sights Producers as well as Germaine Koh, John Steil, Cedric Bomford, Annabel Vaughan, and Javier Campos, with additional design contributions from Cory Douglas.

FLEET is generously supported by the BC Arts Council, City of Burnaby Public Art Program, City of Vancouver, Canadian Heritage, Canada Council for the Arts, and CMHC-Granville Island.
