About: Creative Practices Institute was a non-profit society, in Edmonton Alberta. Edmonton is located on Treaty 6 Land and we acknowledge this traditional territory.
The Institute was founded in 2014 by: Nika Blasser, Connor Buchanan, Joseph Doherty, Mo Ossobleh, Brittney Roy, Sergio Serrano and Bryce Zimmerman. We closed our doors to the public in June of 2016.
We offered artists, art professionals and art organizations access to training, mentorship and resources in artistic entrepreneurship. Our gallery served as a venue for the display and experience of insightful, thought provoking art and design; it functioned as a hub for creative research, discourse and innovation at all levels of creative practice.
