The Arts Factory is coming!

The Arts Factory is proud to be supporting local culture through the creation of an arts hub at its new home. This hub will be a multidisciplinary arts facility that will include 21,000 square feet of combined workshops, studios, offices and common spaces. It is important to our overall vision that the community of artists created in 281 Industrial is mutually supportive and that the building will function as a community centre and incubator for artists and their practice.
