Incorporated in 1981, Charles Street Video (CSV) is a non-profit, membership-based artist centre located in downtown Toronto. Our mandate is to provide media artists with opportunities for production and to foster an environment for the advancement of media arts practises, experimentation, and the creation of community.
CSV rents editing rooms and production gear. We host resident artists, provide workshops and equipment orientations, and co-host many youth development projects, among other activities. Ours is a busy, active centre for making media art work, however you may conceive of it!
We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of our members through membership and user fees.
CSV is further supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council and the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council for annual operating and occasional project assistance.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation and Heritage Canada's Cultural Spaces program provide occasional capital funding.
