The Quarters Arts Society (QAS) is a non-profit society that works to grow the already vibrant neighborhood of the Quarters and Boyle street and encourage its growth by engaging people with inclusive, accessible, and citizen-led projects that honour the area's heritage and respect diversity in the community. 

Co*LAB, Community {Arts} Laboratory will be an affordable, accessible and inclusive space that provides resources and exposure to the arts within the Boyle Street neighbourhood. Administered by Quarters Arts Society (QAS), Co*LAB, functioning as a citizen-led, community-run facility, will connect communities, share knowledge and ideas, and make space to collaborate, create, and celebrate in the Boyle Street area.

Ociciwan is one of two buildings that has begun its rehabilitation in the Quarters after a public competition for tenants. Ociciwan Contemporary Art Centre gives the collective a home to connect to a broader audience, supporting the work of Indigenous contemporary artists, curators, designers, educators and culture workers.

This art space will allow the city to fully engage its relationship to Indigenous contemporary art and build capacity for exhibitions, dialogue and criticality.
