The SPAO Centre boasts a spacious multifunctional studio and the Ottawa region's only independent and critical gallery space dedicated to photographic and video art. A modern space with cement floors, white walls, the SPAO Centre is perfect for board meetings, private viewings, cocktail parties and a variety of other events that suit the contemporary studio. 

A basic facility booking package includes access to three spaces: the patio, the gallery, and the multifunctional studio; basic furnishings include 20 white chairs and a bar top. Upgrades can include additional chairs, tables, audio-visual equipment and/or event lighting. 

SPAO is located in the heart of Little Italy, which is an exciting urban village located near Ottawa's new Light Rail Transit system, Dow's Lake, and the beautiful Arboretum. SPAO is a short walk from other arts hubs, small businesses, museums, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment.
