Nia in the Park

Artscape Invites You to Nia in the Park

The transformation of the historic Wychwood TTC Streetcar barns in the St. Clair & Bathurst neighbourhood into a multi-faceted arts and environmental convergence centre called the Green Arts Barns has been, and continues to be, a largely community-driven project led by Artscape.

As the capital campaign continues to gain momentum for the Green Arts Barns, the community continues to lead the way with support for this project through a variety of fundraising initiatives. In the coming months you will be receiving information about these grassroots community initiatives and it is our hope that you would support them as you do other Artscape projects. You can help by forwarding the information onto your own mailing list or coming out to attend these events when you are able. Please find information about the first of these events - Nia in the Park - below.

Thank you for your continued support of Artscape and helping us to build creative communities.

Celebrate community, come dance…
