Connecting people and communities through the arts
A welcoming destination where artists, arts organizations, and the community come together to explore, create, and be inspired.
The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning is a Not-for-Profit, charitable organization that operates an historic city-owned building on Kingston’s waterfront. We provide professionally equipped and affordable space to artists and arts organizations for artistic creation.
We are home to eight independent tenant arts organizations, eight resident artist studios, and three multi-use rentable public spaces. We are a dynamic arts hub that coordinates and creates high-quality, accessible, arts-focused programming for all levels of artistic abilities and experience.
Our partners include artists, arts and community organizations, The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, and the City of Kingston’s Department of Cultural Services.
We leverage our resources to generate income from rentals, donations, sponsorships and grants to ensure long-term sustainability of the organization.
As a unique cultural landmark for Kingston residents and area visitors, we enhance learning and public participation in the arts.
