PAVED Arts Facilities

PAVED Arts is located at 424 20th Street in the heart of Saskatoon’s core neighbourhood. We have over 3000 square feet of galleries, offices, production suites, a library and a multipurpose event space. The building is shared by AKA artist-run and BlackFlash Magazine. We are all non-profit visual arts organizations serving Saskatoon since the 1970s. The production facilities are fully accessible to all PAVED Producing Members, for their own independent, non-commercial projects. Members also receive subsidized rental of equipment far below market rates, as well as training. Our goal is to foster an environment for free expression, creative thought and personal growth.
