Doors Open @ UrbanArts

May 26 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

UrbanArts is housed in a former City of Toronto building where traffic and street signs were manufactured and warehoused. Five years ago, the space was transformed community space and home of UrbanArts that features a recording studio, dance studio, digital arts lab, community garden and a chef’s kitchen. The space was developed and designed with input from youth in the neighbourhood who wanted to see a facility designed with them and their artistic interests in mind.

Our 3,800-square feet space hosts regular arts programming including music production and recording arts, graphic design, photography and videography, dance, visual arts, spoken word, cooking, and gardening. In addition, it is the current home of the CultureShock Community Arts Festival, now in its 13th year. The UrbanArts Mount Dennis location is a true creative hub that brings together residents of all ages and backgrounds.

Visitors are invited to come learn about UrbanArts, meet our staff, get a tour of the facility, and enjoy special weekend activities as part of Doors Open!

Featured activities include:
– Live Demos in our Music Studio
– Art projects inspired by the building’s history
– Food samples from our culinary Program
– Games
