Host your event at TMAC!

TMAC is available to rent for a wide range of events—from gallery openings and receptions to small meetups and hackathons, dining events to panel discussions.

Located in the heart of the Queen West Triangle – a vibrant, arts-friendly neighbourhood close to downtown Toronto – TMAC offers event, meeting and exhibition spaces in a beautiful purpose-built media arts facility overlooking Lisgar Park.

Rates are for either daytime (9-6pm) or evening events (6-11pm) inclusive of set up/clean up time.

We offer nonprofit/educational discounts and welcome co-production and co-presentation inquiries!

We are completing the fit-out of our new cinema and expect it to be available in spring 2019.
