How to find us

NAISA is pleased to re-launch the NAISA North Media Arts Centre at its newly owned space in South River, ON in January 2022. From 2017 to 2021, NAISA was located at the building formerly known as Renée’s Café and Bean There Café. Now, NAISA is just a bit further in the centre of the village of South River, a short distance from Algonquin Park, and surrounded by a variety of local shops.

“NAISA is the acronym for New Adventures in Sound Art. Undertaking new adventures in sound and media art has been a focus for the organization since its founding in 2001. Throughout NAISA’s history it has challenged artists and audiences alike with alternative ways of listening and presenting sound. NAISA purchased a building in November 2021 that will be the new permanent home for the organization in South River, an unprecedented step in the growth of sound art in Canada. We hope that the artists we work with and present from this point forward will grow as much as we anticipate growing in the years ahead. South River is not just NAISA North but NAISA New.” —Darren Copeland, Artistic Director, New Adventures in Sound Art

A big thanks to all NAISA’s supporters for your donations, as well as John Mesec at Thoms & Currie, and the Community Forward Fund for making this happen! NAISA’s staff and Board of Directors are excited at the possibilities ahead.
