Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning

The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning is a charitable arts organization, operating in the J.K. Tett heritage building on Lake Ontario's waterfront. Now owned by the City of Kingston, it was originally part of the Morton Brewery and Distillery Company (built in the mid-19th century). A fascinating example of the intersection between heritage and contemporary community use, the Tett is home to nine arts organizations, eight creativity studio artists, four rental spaces, and a fully licensed café. Learn more about this fascinating site through the video below. Book your tour here! Note: Proof of vaccination will be required to enter this site.
