The Orange Hub

Since 2019, FAVA has called The Orange Hub home. The Orange Hub is a great location for artists and arts organizations, and has accessibility entrances, security, and collection points for artists.

You don’t have to be a member. Everyone is welcome at FAVA! For prices, non-members will be charged the standard rates. Members receive artist rates for our Studios.

Conveniently located near local restaurants, nearby bus stations, and a future LRT line, The Orange Hub is a great place for all artists in our community.

10045-156 St NW
Edmonton, AB

The Rentals & Studios Office is in Room 381B. With the parkade under construction, you must enter The Orange Hub through the Theatre Entrance (East entrance) on 155th Street. From there, walk straight until you see the Orange Hub main office on your right, and turn left. Follow that hallway down even as it veers right, then turn left. Follow the map provided on this page for a visual of these instructions.

The West Entrance on 156 St in the turnaround is the default pickup location for taxis or Ubers. A FAVA Staff member or an Orange Hub Staff Member will gladly assist you if you get turned around.
