Since 1972, Place des Arts―a not-for-profit arts centre in Coquitlam―has provided a warm, welcoming home to our arts community, offering a rich, inspiring environment that is accessible to all who wish to learn, explore, express and create through the arts.
Highly skilled teaching artists offer classes and private lessons in music, dance, theatre arts, visual arts and creative writing for everyone, from babes to boomers and from recreational to pre-professional artists, creating space for learning, self-expression and artistic growth.
Each summer, our Summer Fun! art camps for ages 5 – 12 and three-hour art intensives for youth ages 11 – 14 run for six weeks in July and August. Summer Fun! offers flexibility, choice, innovation, excellent instruction, before and after camp care and, of course, lots of summer-time fun!
Place des Arts offers a robust scholarship and bursary program, as well as subsidized programs for those in our community who may not have access to arts education due to financial or other circumstances.
Place des Arts’ Artisan Shop and three art galleries showcase the work of local emerging artists, and our events and performances make us a cultural hub, drawing diverse members of the community together to experience the arts.
