About our Previous Home:

In 2010 ECT established and equipped the Arts Mosh Pit (AMP) in the heart of downtown St. Catharines. AMP fostered new performing arts groups by offering a motivating peer atmosphere at affordable rates. This innovative approach to shared space and resources enabled residents to develop their capacity and increase financial sustainability.
