At NAC we pride ourselves on being a top-notch Artist-run Centre as well as a downtown community hub that reflects the diversity and interests of Niagara. Our own slate of programmed events is enhanced by the events brought to us by other community groups. To recognize the eclecticism of what happened at NAC this November we’re offering two FREE TICKETS to STRUTT 2015 to any NAC member who attended three of the following events:

  1. The Avant Canada Fraggle Rock Dance Your Cares Away Party
  2. The Herotica pornography for women screening/Safe BDSM practices workshop
  3. The 2014 STRUTT Wearable Art Show at WS Tyler
  4. One of the Sunday Quaker gatherings in the Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery

Email if three-out-of-four makes you better than ain’t bad.

NAC will be closed for the weekend

We’re taking a break and shutting the place down this weekend.
Regular gallery hours resume Wednesday 3 December!


Setting the record straight:

We’ve been trying to set the record straight this week in the wake of another STRUTT fiasco. Seems everyone’s convinced that STRUTT’s a fundraiser. It’s not. The STRUTT Wearable Art Show is a programmed event produced by the Niagara Artists Centre. All the visual artists, performers, and musicians are paid by NAC. Want to see how the money works?
