Brampton Culture Centre

Several cultural entities in the city operate under the umbrella of the Brampton Arts Council. Located in the city is the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA, formerly the Peel Heritage Complex), which is run by the Region of Peel.

The Rose Theatre was originally the Brampton Performing Arts Centre, opened in September 2006. With the arrival of so many new patrons downtown has stimulated the development of numerous new businesses nearby. A new Fountain Stage was unveiled in June 2008 at the nearby Garden Square. Brampton also has six libraries to serve half-million residents. A ratio of one library per more than 80,000 residents, with the lowest library ratio among major Canadian cities.

(PAMA) The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives in Brampton includes a museum, art gallery, and archives. Since its opening in 1968, the art gallery section previously known as the Art Gallery of Peel has exhibited local, national, and international artists, both contemporary and historical from their permanent collection.
