About Artscape Gibraltar Point:

In 1999, a group of Toronto Island residents contacted Artscape when the historic former Toronto Island Public and Natural Science School, located on the south-western most tip of the Island, was threatened with demolition.

Working with the City of Toronto, Artscape converted the school into Artscape Gibraltar Point, preserving an important part of the Island’s heritage and creating an inspiring affordable retreat for artists and creative thinkers.

Artscape Gibraltar Point is now a world-renowned centre giving the artistic and non-profit communities an affordable place to think, experiment and share ideas.

The centre offers 35,000 sq. ft. of multi-use space where more than 800 artists have experimented and created art through Artscape Lodge; more than 600 charitable and not-for-profit groups have convened to build their organizational capacity and hosted events through the Retreat Centre; and 15 long-term studios provide work space for a mix of painters, sculptors, musicians, theatre companies and a recording studio.
