TAP Centre For Creativity provides exhibition, performance, and presentation opportunities where artists can create, collaborate and share. We welcome submissions from groups and individual artists interested in presenting in our facility. Our gallery and theatre is available for a wide range of creative events, such as poetry, theatre, dance, film, visual arts, and more. These events are typically shorter term in nature. The gallery is bright with LED lights and features an easy to use hanging system.  For events, our space has a projector and fixed screen available for use, along with seating options and a licensed bar. The Bruce B. Johnson Theatre inside TAP Centre For Creativity can be rented for theatrical productions, concerts, film screenings, stand-up comedy, lectures and other cultural events. The rental includes 80 seats in the default configuration, a backstage area, dressing rooms, the use of our lighting and sound consoles, plus a variety of stage lights, curtains and other relevant accessories that you may install to achieve your artistic vision.
