Seeking volunteers for events!

We are currently in desperate need for one or two volunteers for each event.  

The tasks would primarily include collecting donations and greeting attendees at the door, a little support for setup and cleanup, and occasionally assisting our bartender (not serving, just restocking bar or help with tidy up). It would be for our open mic nights and live music events, so approximately 2- 4 evenings per month for approximately 3 hours at a time (7:30-10:30pm). It's a super fun and creative environment with awesome live music and art! 

Please text/call 250-320-5452, or e-mail padlockstudios@hotmail.com :) :) :)

Private Studios available for rent!

Padlock Studios now has another private office/studio space available! With that you also have use of the large communal working space (2500 sq ft), a washroom, as well as a janitors wash closet, 24/7 access, secure downtown building (2nd and Victoria St), heated, A/C, and wifi. 
You'll also have an awesome bunch of young artists and entrepreneurs as studio mates!

Call for Artist Submissions!

Call for Artist Submissions!
Inspired by a documentary made by a local group titled, “Our Social Justice Movement,” Padlock Studios is putting together an exhibit that further embodies the themes put forth in this film. With a specific focus on how varied and subjective social justice views and practices can be, yet how they can all work as one to better propel the ideal of a more socially equitable world.  

We are encouraging submissions that involve an individual’s vision of an ideal socially just world, examples of practices that help spread and progress social justice, discouragement, opinions, and emotions around systemic injustices that plague our society (racism, sexism, oppression, marginalization, etc).
Please e-mail your contact information, with an artist statement, brief artist biography (if you haven’t submitted previously), and images of the piece(s) you wish to show (no more then 10 images per e-mail). 
Submission Deadline: April 10, 2017

Open Mic Nights @ Padlock...A new bi-weekly music event !

Our first open mic night last Friday was a great success!! Over 130 people stopped by to hear some of the 19 local performers who showcased some serious talent and played some killer tunes! We are so grateful to everyone who took the time out of their busy Friday night schedule to pop in and check it out...your presence and support has made it possible for us to continue these Open Mic Nights on a bi-weekly basis! We hope you all enjoyed it enough to come out to the next one on February 3, 2017! As always we will serve some delish local brews from Red Collar and wine from Monte Creek Ranch Winery....but it is still an all ages event ! All performers welcome, sign up upon arrival, first come first to play.  We look forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces there again on Feb 3!  :) :) :)
