Welcome to

Artis Logo with Slogan Large.png

We know the Arts informs everything we do—everyday.

Seriously.

Explore and see how.


The GTA is the most diverse and vibrant art scene in Canada.

This is because ALL of us—many of us volunteers—keep the art scene going. We give our time, our art, and our passion to this. This is purely and truly a ‘labour of love.’ We know the value of words and images.

Check out our Events Page right here.

The Artis Events page showcases over 100 Lit Events, with lit-erally at least one event every night of the week in GTA.

We know that art is our cultural voice.

The Artis exists because of you. And this incredible art scene that IS the GTA exists because of YOU.

Let’s keep the scene growing, because art is our cultural voice. Without art, we, as a people, become silenced.

We need not say more. Join us and become a part of this amazing scene.
