About the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning

About the Tett:

The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning is a charitable arts organization, operating in the beautiful JK Tett heritage building on Lake Ontario's waterfront in Kingston, Ontario. This historic building is owned by the City of Kingston and was fully renovated in 2015. It originally formed part of the Morton Brewery and Distillery Company, which was built in the mid-19th century. Learn more the history of The Tett Centre site.

The Tett Centre is home to eight arts organizations, eight Creativity Studio Artists, and a variety of rental spaces, including the Malting Tower, Rehearsal Hall, and Tett Gallery and Activity Room. It's newest addition is the fully licenced Juniper Cafe with a waterfront patio on the Lakeshore. Find out about our Resident Organizations here.

Together with our resident arts organizations, The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning (as a charitable organization itself) is part of an arts hub that also includes the Queen’s University world class performing arts facility, the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts. If you are visiting Kingston, The Tett Centre offers many opportunities to immerse yourself in Canadian arts: classes, workshops, exhibitions, open house events. Find information about upcoming events here. 

The Tett contributes to a vibrant arts community in Kingston by fostering collaboration among the tenant groups and with Queen's University, the Kingston community and beyond. The fully accessible Tett Centre engages and supports artists of all disciplines and levels of expertise. Learn more about the mandate of The Tett Centre.
