About the Richmond Arts Centre

The Richmond Arts Centre connects Richmond’s diverse community with arts education, cultural experiences and creative spaces.

Located within the Richmond Cultural Centre, its amenities include studios for dance, music, painting, pottery, textile arts and lapidary arts as well as the Media Lab.

The Arts Centre is best known for its high-quality artist-led education programs for all ages, particularly for children and youth, but it is also home to a number of local Resident Art Groups, offers professional development support to artists and cultural groups through the Community Cultural Development office and is the producer of the annual Richmond Children’s Arts Festival.
