Fractured Atlas Sign in/up

Pio! Centre for Drawing is available for rentals to community and art organizations, non-for-profits, socially engaged business and individuals.

- Pio! is wheelchair accessible: the event space and the washroom are wheelchair accessible. We are committed to create an open space for everyone and we will try our best to fulfill any specific requirements you may have to host your event.

- Pio!'s washrooms are all gender-neutral.

- Pio! space is used for a diversity of visual art practices involving inks and paint, therefore it is not a 100% chemical free environment.

- As much as we love dancing and partying, Pio! is a space for knowledge sharing and quiet events like screenings, performances, exhibitions, photo/video shoots and book launches.

- Pio! space has a beautiful set of ceiling windows. We have a lot of natural light during the afternoon, but any event needing a dark space (projections, performances, etc) have to be organized after dark.

- Pio! is quite a busy space, the sooner you tell us your dates, the more chances you have that the space is free!
