What we’ve accomplished

The first professional, multi-disciplinary centre for Black art in Canada, the Nia Centre for the Arts stands as a testament to the power of community support. Because of your generosity, we have raised $12 million and refurbished our building at 524 Oakwood Avenue, allowing us to realize this visionary project. Your support has played a vital role in bringing this vision to life.
