Our Expanded Programming

Following two years of isolation, social distancing and uncertainty, it is with great pleasure and anticipation that, on April 11, 2022, we opened the doors of Neruda Arts Studio, our brand new space in St Jacobs, Ontario! 

Can't find us? We are here!

Our address is 8 Spring Street, but our entrance is located at the back of the building and is most easily accessed from the parking lot located off Albert Street West, between the St Jacobs Playhouse Theatre and Hamel Brooms.

Please note that parking is not permitted behind the St James Evangelical Lutheran Church. There is on-street parking on King Street, and plenty of free parking at the large public parking lot at the corner of Albert St East and Water St.

Public Transportation: Grand River Transit bus stop is just one block away at King and Front Streets. The route is #21 from Conestoga Mall to Elmira.
