918 Bathurst Centre for Culture, Arts, Media and Education is an arts and culture sanctuary in Toronto’s Annex Neighbourhood.

Our mandate is to support new and experimental arts by providing space to individuals and organizations that otherwise could not incubate, rehearse and present their work in the heart of downtown Toronto.   We are always looking to partner with artists, organizations and collectives to produce theatre, dance, concerts, film festivals, art galas and exhibitions and many others types of arts and culture events.

A former Buddhist temple, our multi-use facility is equipped with a 200-seat theatre and an visual art gallery which has been host to a wide array of arts and cultural organizations from Toronto and across Canada.  918 Bathurst is also the ideal venue for private events such as workshops, weddings, seminars, trade shows and more.  As we are a non-profit, the proceeds from your event will be reinvested into the arts and culture at 918 Bathurst.

918 Bathurst is an Associate Member of the Bloor St. Culture Corridor, an organization that includes the Royal Ontario Museum, Royal Conservatory of Music, The Gardiner Museum, Alliance Francaise Toronto and 15 other prominent Toronto cultural organizations.  These partnerships have allowed us to strengthen our connection to our local community as well as receive leadership from these institutional pillars of Canadian arts and culture.


918 Bathurst offers internships & volunteer opportunities, including student volunteer service hours toward fulfilling high school credits. We can help students fill out the “Notification of Planned Community Involvement Activities” form and find a suitable match of work, experience and personal interest.

We offer a positive space that encourages both personal and professional development. You will have the opportunity to work with creative, professional, and amazing people!
