The arts are an elemental part of our lives.

The creation, study and experience of the arts move us in astonishing ways: entertaining, challenging, complicating, inspiring.

They resonate and speak to our experiences lived and imagined.

The arts reveal our commonality – creating connection and community – and are an intrinsic part of what makes us human.

The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts is a home for the creative arts at Queen’s and a hub of vibrant artistic study, creation and exhibition in our community. The learning experiences shaped by the Isabel will enhance our students’ skills and abilities for their work in the arts and beyond.

Situated on the shores of Lake Ontario, the Centre brings together exceptional spaces and programs with a captivating sense of place to create a dynamic venue for our students and community to learn, discover, think, do, and experience, together.  

We acknowledge that the land on which we gather at the Isabel is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee Peoples.
