Our Mandate


A thriving hub of artistic creation, learning and exchange that engages and inspires every part of our community.


To make space for arts exploration, artistic development and creative incubation in Kingston. We do this through a welcoming community hub that brings together spaces, people, ideas and tools that support creativity and learning experiences.


The Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning (TCCL) is a not-for-profit corporation governed by an independent, community-based board, which is accountable to its membership: the City of Kingston as represented by Mayor and Council. 

Within its broader mission, the TCCL is mandated (and funded in part) by the City of Kingston to operate the City-owned J.K. Tett Centre as an accessible multi-use arts centre that supports cultural vitality throughout the region.

Strategic Plan 2023-2028

The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning are pleased to present  the new 2023-2028 Strategic Plan.

After launching consultations with community members to help inform the development of our new strategic plan in 2022, we have been able to focus our vision and identify areas for improvement, challenges, and opportunities to better serve our community. The new strategic plan, with its renewed mission and vision, will guide our work and growth over the next five years. We are excited to continue nurturing our community's artistic potential and facilitate engagement with the arts.
