TSEvents Calls AGP an “Inspired Space”

Toronto is a diverse city with countless amazing venues from grand estates to hidden gems. With all the options available, we feel proud to have been featured as an “inspired space” in this recent article from TSEvents, Toronto’s long-standing event industry publication.


Inspiring Because: The Toronto Island venue is one of several Artscape sites that the not-for-profit organization has transformed into accessible community hubs where cultural programming is sustained through affordable rental and user fees revenues.

The Space: The century-old building, once the old Island School, is home to an ever-changing roster of in-resident artists. Inside, the windowed simplicity of the Beacon and Fireplace Rooms, adjoined by a hallway, are blank canvases for all kinds of events, from workshops and meetings to receptions and seated dining. Outside, the expansive green oasis of the West and South Lawns, with beach access, has hosted everything from music festivals and teambuilding to outdoor retreats and dining under the stars. An outdoor fireplace, fire pits and pretty overhead lighting trellises are among the amenities. Pull the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse into play with tours and themes – reportedly it’s haunted!

Event Notes: Dock a private charter at the base of the lighthouse for easy orchestration of guest arrivals. Incorporate an art activity into an event or retreat with an artist talk, tour or hands-on session.

Bonus: A large in-house inventory of tables, chairs, dishware and more saves the hassle and cost of transporting rentals across the water.

Capacity: Beacon & Fireplace Rooms (200 each); West Lawn (1,500); South Lawn (300); Total capacity (2,000)
