Meridian Arts Centre (formerly Toronto Centre for the Arts)


Since 1993, Meridian Arts Centre has welcomed thousands of visitors, patrons, performers and artists through its grand main entrance.


Meridian Arts Centre began and remains as unique and diverse as the Toronto community itself, a testament to the virtues of harmony, vitality and celebration, with a spirit that embraces innovation and tradition equally.

In 2015, Toronto’s City Council approved the consolidation of the governance and operations of the Meridian Hall (formerly Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, and the Meridian Arts Centre (formerly Toronto Centre for the Arts) into one new organization under the direction of a City appointed board called TO Live.

TO Live relishes the opportunity to engage with the community by providing multi-disciplinary arts programming in our versatile spaces through education, creation, and performance programs – for all ages – in the communities they serve.

Additionally, our Education & Engagement programme is an integral component of our commitment to the arts community and to our neighbours throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
