The City supports arts and culture to engage the community, activate buildings and streets and draw people to the neighborhood.

Quarters Arts Co*LAB

The Quarters Arts Society (QAS) is a non-profit society that works to grow the already vibrant neighborhood of the Quarters and Boyle Street. They encourage 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 is 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 functions as a citizen-led, community-run facility that connects communities, shares knowledge and ideas, and provides space to collaborate, create and celebrate.


Ociciwan is 1 of 2 buildings in the Quarters that have undergone rehabilitation 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 allows the city to fully engage its relationship to Indigenous contemporary art and build capacity for exhibitions, dialogue and criticality.
