Where Canada Comes to Create

The Orillia Centre for Arts + Culture is a charitable organization dedicated to building a new home for creative arts, education, and innovation in Orillia.

About Us

The Orillia Centre for Arts and Culture is dedicated to building a multidisciplinary centre for creative practice, education and innovation that serves Ontario. Since 2014, the company has presented critically challenging and non-commercial programming in the city of Orillia and surrounding area. We curate dance, music, literary festivals and visual arts exhibitions, which would otherwise not be seen locally. 2019 marked an important growth for our company, as we launched an artist's residency program that works in tandem with our education program. 

First conceived as one campus on the grounds of the Huronia Regional Centre property, our vision has evolved to embrace programming in several venues until we can create the perfect home. This vision has attracted the support of business and cultural leaders, from Orillia and further afield.

Our dream anticipates the Orillia Centre for Arts + Culture will house a performance space, sculpture garden, gallery, rehearsal space and live/work studios.


Due to COVID-19, the Orillia Centre for Arts + Culture is postponing all programming activities in order to ensure the health and safety of our community. During this time, we would like to express our deep gratitude to all essential workers and first responders.

Your donations to the Centre go directly to our effort to create a world-class facility for arts and culture. Any donation, big or small, is a significant step in providing unparalleled access to culture in Orillia and Ontario as a whole.
