Neruda Arts’ philosophy includes striving to present culturally diverse performances that would otherwise be under-represented in Canada. We are also focused on collaborating with our volunteers, who are mainly students from the region of Waterloo to produce quality programming.
While supporting arts from around the globe, Neruda Arts has a strong focus on presenting work from New Canadian and emerging artists as they develop their craft in a Canadian context. Neruda Arts is dedicated to the artistic development of local artists, and the career development of professional artists working within our areas of focus, while striving to foster and expand audiences for diverse art forms locally, nationally and internationally.
Following their move to St. Jacobs, and their own studio, Neruda Arts has significantly increased their programming to include, theatre, in-studio concerts, classes in the arts, a visual arts gallery and a mobile stage – The Peace Stage, capable of bringing the arts to underserved communities.
