We are so grateful for the beautiful 16 years we have been here at 6 Noble Street, and for the 25 years before when we danced at 1515A Queen Street.

Symposium: Spaces for Creative Development and Learning

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/symposium-spaces-for-creative-development-and-learning-tickets-49946641750

We are hosting a conversation about making space for the arts in Toronto.

Our building at 6 Noble St was purchased to be turned into condominiums. Despite a year and a half of conversations with the city and the developers, they will not make space for the Pia Bouman School, and the extended community of local and international artists who make the space a thriving hub of artistic activity, to remain at this location.

Parkdale, and Toronto, is going to lose another beautiful, historic, and much-loved community arts space. Sadly this is not an isolated occurrence, as we watch many community-based art organizations, non-profits, and small artistic companies get pushed out of their spaces and out of the city centre. And we are not the only ones losing our artistic space.


The symposium on October 1st aims to talk about:

  • How to cultivate a future for community arts organizations in the city

  • How to engage communities, city officials, and audiences in our efforts

  • Ways to reverse the tide that is driving smaller arts organizations, live-work spaces and venues to the periphery of the city

  • How to make sure that arts education stays accessible to all children and youth

  • The need for spaces for artists within a reasonable distance of where they live

  • How to foster genuine recognition of the importance of art spaces within the city
