The Georgian Bay Centre for the Arts (GBarts) is a community driven makers space in downtown Owen Sound.  The doors are kept open by the generous donations of our supporters as well as the financial stream created through classes, open studios and studio rental. All funds, charitable gifts and bequests go towards maintaining and enhancing the educational programming, residencies, equipment, and providing artists with access to an affordable, safe and dynamic multi use studios. Your donation is fully tax-deductible!

GBarts has opened an endowment fund through Community Foundation Grey Bruce. Once this fund has reached its goal, it will provide bursaries for students attending post secondary arts institutions in Ontario.

Charitable Tax Receipts are issued for donations over $20.  Please make cheques payable to Community Foundation Grey Bruce, and indicate The Georgian Bay Centre for the Arts.
