Our Vision

The Orillia Centre for Arts + Culture is dedicated to building a multidisciplinary centre for creative practice, education and innovation, serving Ontario. Since 2016, the company has presented critically challenging and non-commercial programming in the city of Orillia and surrounding area. We program dance, theatre, music, literary festivals and visual art exhibitions which would otherwise not be seen locally. We offer educational and outreach workshops curated in collaboration with the artists that we engage. 


Over the past two years our programming has become increasingly focused on opportunities for Ontario artists and the support we wish to provide to them during their creative process. Our research-based residencies offer practitioners the chance to engage in their art discipline with rigour. Through our Artist In Residency program, we are building a supportive hub for experimentation and creative development.
