Over its 40-year history, the Koffler has offered a rich array of programmatic, education and learning programs, including exhibitions of contemporary art, literary programs, art classes, lectures, concerts, film screenings, and theatre performances. The Koffler also serves public and private school students and their teachers through Koffler Gallery exhibition tours and workshops.
From 1980 to 2009, the Koffler Gallery was located in its own dedicated space at the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre. The Gallery moved its programming off-site in 2009 when the BJCC was redeveloped into Sherman Campus. The Koffler’s multidisciplinary programs continued around the greater Toronto area during this time.
In 2013, after five years of off-site programs, the Koffler Centre of the Arts opened its administrative offices and the new Koffler Gallery at Artscape Youngplace in downtown Toronto. The Artscape Youngplace facilities showcase Koffler Gallery exhibitions, public programs, expanded school and education programs, as well as Koffler cross-disciplinary programs – literary events, performances, speakers series, workshops and more.
