KAPISANAN Energy Exchange Program

Our multi-purpose facility in Kensington Market serves as a backdrop for community engagement, personal development, and creative exploration. With that idea in mind, we launched the KAPISANAN Energy Exchange Program. This Program is a work-trade program helps keeps our space accessible and sustainable for the users and the organization.

Our "Energy Exchangers" are KAPISANAN members who help us clean and run the space in exchange for FREE use of the space/equipment*.

 This mutually beneficial program is designed to help members access a free space for their activity (dance rehearsals, theatre rehearsals, yoga/fitness, events, etc), while also allowing us to stay clean, friendly, and able to give back to our community. 

 It works like this: You and/or one of your crew work a 3 or 4 hour shift once a week on the same day, at the same time, cleaning the space, or other coordinating tasks the organization needs done. In exchange, you receive an equal amount of hours of FREE space rental! There is a 3 month initial commitment- which will give you time to settle into the community and the routine. If you love it, stay as long as you want, as long as you renew your membership annually!

 If you are interested in our Energy Exchange Program, email your letter of intent to tell us what you would be using the space for, and if you are coming in with a crew, include their names and contact info.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you soon!


*Eligible FREE space/equipment usage is subject to availability.
