About the Center Become a Volunteer

Creating community vibrancy with exhibitions, performances, programs, concerts, and more!

Welcome to the Granville Center for the Arts! Our 501c3 nonprofit organization was founded, built, and is run 100% by volunteers. We're on a mission to connect world-class, emerging, local, and student artists with our community. Through the power of art, we're dedicated to fostering a vibrant, accessible, and inclusive creative arts center that brings people together.

Our space is located in the Annex building next to the United Church of Granville. It is a hub of artistic exploration and expression. We provide a home for painters, sculptors, makers, writers, poets, performers, and all lovers of the arts. From workshops and artist talks to theatrical performances and printmaking clubs, our diverse range of offerings allows everyone to find their own creative voice.

We've curated a space that's bursting with inspiration and possibility. Our community gallery cultivates creativity and imagination, showcasing exceptional rotating exhibits and events. The gallery doubles as an intimate performance venue, and our artist library, gathering space, and creative think tank offer endless opportunities to collaborate, experiment, and explore.

Are you ready to be a part of a thriving community that celebrates creativity and the arts? There are countless ways to get involved at the Granville Center for the Arts. From volunteering to attending events, donating to our organization, or becoming a sponsor - you can actively help support and bring incredible arts and cultural opportunities to Granville.
