Sun-drenched and spectacular, Downtown Orlando's cultural scene brings excitement to life through an infusion of visual and performing arts. Welcome to THE SLICE our online community, serving as the official website of the Downtown Arts District.

The Downtown Arts District is a dedicated nonprofit organization for advancing arts and economic development in the City of Orlando. Established in 2000, the Arts District represents and serves the arts community by providing promotional and financial assistance to art and cultural venues, public art projects, and signature events. Comprised of a series of cultural communities, the Arts District encompasses the visual arts, literature, the performing arts including music, drama, film, dance, and arts and culture-related retail businesses.

The Downtown Arts District provides funding support, manages and operates CityArts Factory -- a 20,000 square-foot multi-use arts and cultural destination where visual and performing arts co-exist in the heart of the Arts District. Visited by more than 100,000 people annually, CityArts Factory showcases an infusion of local and international works of art, and is home to six independently operated art galleries. In addition, CityArts Factory is the home to SAK Comedy Lab. Funded in part by the Downtown Arts District and the City of Orlando’s Downtown Development Board and Community Redevelopment Agency, CityArts Factory is open free of charge Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For additional information, call (407) 648-7060.

CityArts Factory will be moving its headquarters to the historic Rogers Kiene Building on December 1, 2018. Grand re-opening is on the 3rd Thursday in January 2019. 

The Downtown Arts District is a private, non-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt corporation operating in the State of Florida.
