Artspace provides space for arts and culture to flourish. Home to artists, arts organizations and a range of support services, the iconic Artspace building has been the artistic anchor of Winnipeg's historic Exchange District for over thirty years. Each year over 80,000 people pass through our doors to create, exhibit, view and learn. So … when should we expect you?

The information we post is drawn from our experiences working in, and for, the arts over many years. We hope you find the information useful, and if you have a topic you’d like us to look into, let us know and we’ll tap our resources to find an answer.

You believe in the power of art to change individuals and to change communities, and so do we. Just like you, we have seen it, we have experienced it, and because there are so many artists under one roof, on a daily basis.

A bold gift 30 years ago, gave a safe, secure and long-term home to arts organizations and artists. A 100 year loan of the Gault Building (now known as Artspace), the Grande Dame of the Exchange District, has been a gift put to good use: home to 3 galleries presenting 20 shows per year, a cinema presenting films 5 nights a week, most of which wouldn’t be presented in Winnipeg if the Cinémathèque didn’t exist, a dozen artist studios permitting works on canvas, sculptures and sound pieces to come to life, writing studios flowing out works of fiction, poetry, and beautiful narratives, production centers for filmmakers as experienced as Deco Dawson, or up and comers like Madison Thomas, or new refugees simply seeking to have a voice, dark rooms for photographers, a media arts centre, book publishers, magazines, print makers, luthers, and things that we might not even be aware happening on 6 floors and 50,000 square feet.

A bold gift that has had even bolder results!

Now we need a gift of a different kind. We are asking you to donate, to give, so that we may sustain the presence of 20 art organizations and its creative members to continue to have a home in the heart of the Exchange District. Now more than ever, we must support their creative capacity, by giving them a space to work and a space to present.

A generous gift that will have generous results!

Consider making a donation today.
