As a Jewish organization, in everything we do we value inclusiveness, equality and justice, giving tangible expression to the Jewish concept of Tikkun Olam. 

Our programming seeks to help people engage with complex issues in  respectful, constructive ways, through 
exhibitions, literary events, performances, digital initiatives, publications and educational activities, offering transformative arts experiences and stimulating intercultural conversations and global dialogues.

These principles underpin the Koffler’s engagement with today’s keenest contemporary creative minds in producing and presenting art and experiences that help us shape our shared cultural life and define our values.

Land Acknowledgement

The Koffler Centre of the Arts acknowledges that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We pay respect and honour their histories, traditions and continuous living cultures, and commit to accountability, respectful relations and friendship. In particular, the Koffler is committed to regularly showcasing Indigenous artists and writers in our gallery and public programs; hiring Indigenous staff members, arts professionals and interns; and working in partnership with Indigenous-led organizations to actively promote collaboration and reconciliation.
