The Centre provides much-needed space for performing arts presentations and visual art exhibitions, as well as specialized spaces for hands-on instruction in the visual, performing, literary and media arts along with unique spaces for receptions and special events, all in pursuit of creative excellence.

Operated by the City of Ottawa, the Centre offers a diversity of programs and activities that bring art to life in the Shenkman Arts Centre, a variety attributed to a unique collaboration with the Centre’s Resident Arts Partners: AOE Arts Council, Gloucester Pottery School, MIFO (Mouvement d’implication francophone d’Orléans), Ottawa School of Art–Orléans Campus and OYP Theatre School. The Centre also houses Heart of Orléans Business Improvement Area, Tara Luz Danse, Orléans Festival, and ARTicipate, a one-of-a-kind endowment fund that supports innovative programming at the Centre.
