A place for storytelling

Over the past few years, The Paint Factory has been selected as a desirable location for local and international creatives to curate their stories.

Stories that are to be viewed, read, listened to and observed through various forms of art.

Artists select this site because its industrial setting and distinct ambiance complement elements of their story, bringing it all to life.

As we move to the project’s next chapter, we proudly acknowledge those who chose to share their creative story at The Paint Factory.  Watch the video below for a curation of some of the stories told at The Paint Factory, so far.
