About the Barns:



Artscape Wychwood Barns is a community cultural hub where a dynamic mix of arts, culture, food security, urban agriculture, environmental and other community activities and initiatives come together to provide a new lease on life for a century-old former streetcar repair facility.

This multi-faceted complex houses artist live/work spaces, programming and administrative facilities for not-for-profit organizations, indoor and outdoor growing areas, a community-run gallery and a 7,680 square foot “Covered Street” used for farmers and art markets, conferences and events. Unlike a traditional community centre, the Artscape Wychwood Barns operate on a self-sustaining model, without requiring ongoing operating subsidy after the initial capital investment. Tenants of Artscape Wychwood Barns pay affordable rents and contribute to the programming of the building and site.

Artscape Wychwood Barns are LEED Gold certified and fully accessible by Ontario standards.
