The Guelph Arts Platform is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating, through its community cultural centres, an inclusive, interdisciplinary, and collaborative environment for artistic expression in Guelph.
We dream of a community hub for local artistic expression where all sorts of visual and performing artists and musicians, and the whole community, come together to experience and celebrate the arts whether they be starting out, recreational or professional.
The atmosphere we are striving for will be cross-pollinating, both formal and informal, and will be conducive to multi-generational mentoring.
The Platform values access, affordability, equal opportunity and respect for the environment and wants to enjoy very strong local ownership including a vibrant partnership with our municipality, the Guelph Arts Council and other organizations, businesses and entrepreneurs that recognize the economic, social and cultural benefits that the arts bring to the city.
We thank the City of Guelph, the Guelph Arts Council, the Musagetes Fund of the Guelph Community Foundation, the Ontario Arts Council and the Woolwich Arrow/Neighbourhood Group for their invaluable support.
