Community Wise Common Room

223 12th Ave, SW Calgary

Community Wise Common Room223 12th Ave, SW CalgaryLocated at 223 – 12th Ave SW, in the heart of Calgary’s Beltline, CommunityWise maintains a beautiful venue that provides offices, meeting rooms, activity spaces, and both indoor and outdoor common spaces for over 80 member organizations. United by the concept of “co-location” (together in the same space), we believe that when diverse, multi-sector groups co-exist in the same location, the result is more than the sum of its parts. The centre is democratically managed with a tenant board of directors, and a small staff collective. The CommunityWise office is open from Monday to Friday for access to member organizations, public resources and events. Members have access to the building for their events, meetings and programs seven days a week, from 6am to midnight.
