Opened in Fall 2013, the Audain Art Centre brings together studios and flexible work spaces for UBC art students. As part of a mixed-use student housing development with academic space at its core, this new facility engages the community in learning opportunities, studio visits and special gallery events.

Thanks to a lead gift from alumnus Michael Audain (BA’62, BSW’63, MSW’65), we have achieved 85% of our fundraising goal. With your help, we can create a dynamic, inspiring and technically advanced learning environment for students.

Join us to transform the way visual art is taught and experienced.

“No one makes art in a vacuum. These new spaces will allow students to collaborate, share ideas and discover creative ways to enrich their art.”
