Rent the Vancity Culture Lab!

The Vancity Culture Lab, or C-Lab as we like to refer to it, was added to The Cultch during our 2008 renovations. This black box studio is a cinderblock construction with the latest in acoustical properties and has been referred to as the best “blackout” room in the city.
