Artist-run centres emerged in Canada in the 1970s as alternative exhibition spaces. Today, they continue to serve as spaces for meaningful dialogue, community engagement, and exchange within and across Canada’s rich art scene. Founded in 1974, Artspace was one of the first artist-run centres in Canada and it remains a vital regional hub for the arts today. We strive to produce thought-provoking exhibitions that engage with diverse cultural and political perspectives through collaboration with artists at all career stages, working in any medium.
Artspace has been serving the Peterborough community for over 45 years. We are a non-profit, charitable organization committed to nurturing the development and presentation of new work from artists of all disciplines.
Artspace is part of a dedicated and diverse community. We welcome audiences of all ages and backgrounds and have developed meaningful relationships with our neighbours in Peterborough’s vibrant downtown.
This service offers grants, bursaries and/or financial prizes.
