Humber College is transforming its Lakeshore Campus into a destination for arts and culture through the development of the Humber Cultural Hub. The Cultural Hub will be a catalyst for building the next generation of artistic, cultural and creative leaders. It will inspire creativity, support a connected community, encourage public appreciation of the arts and offer world-class film, media and performance facilities. Providing much-needed capacity to meet the growing demand for skilled talent in creative industries and delivering important benefits to culturally underserviced local communities, the Cultural Hub will attract businesses, create jobs, enrich the economy and cultivate new audiences for the arts.

Built to the highest standards of sustainability, the Cultural Hub will provide world-class, technology-rich teaching and performance spaces, including a 500-seat Performance Hall, as well as a 140-seat Recital Hall and professional-quality music, film, TV, multimedia equipment and training facilities.
