Sandbox Studios is an accessible, creative space to cultivate, develop, and empower Canadian creatives.  The name “Sandbox” is meant to be reminiscent of how children play in sandboxes, referencing their uninhibited spirit of creativity, discovery, and expression.  Over the past 10 years, we've opened over 5 locations in North America, worked with the biggest brands, hosted the biggest stars, but more importantly spent time building our local communities.  Every step of our evolution has been designed around how to create more opportunities for BIPOC creatives.  Unapologetically.
