ABOUT THE STUDIO
what we do
Necessary Arts Collective is an all-in-one type of space. The studio is known to be an arts hub located in Downtown Guelph; home to 12 - 15 local artists. Some offerings include, individual semi-private studio spaces for rent, co-working memberships, hourly rates, etc.
NAC is fully loaded with 12 individual studio spots, white walls, a kitchenette, 3 bathrooms, storage, 24/7 key fob access, great lighting, security cameras, unlimited wifi, and a gallery wall for shows, exhibitions, events, and more.
The studio has gone through some major renovations since the start of the pandemic in April of 2020. What did we look like prior to COVID-19? Well, the space was busy with workshops, classes, and public show openings, along with the same studio rental structure! Since then, we needed to shift the greater purpose of the space ultimately converting our complete 2 units into studio spaces that can be used at all times (pandemic or not). Don't worry though, we have plans to hold classes again in the future, but we will go more into that at a later date.
The studio has truly blossomed... and we plan on opening up the space when things are safer to do critique nights, art markets and open studio events.
