Not for profit and rooted in the community, TIX on the Square is Edmonton's Arts & Culture Concierge. Owned and operated by the Edmonton Arts Council, TIX connects audiences with the opportunity to live local – supporting artists and artistic works throughout the city.
A hub of performing arts information, TIX's retail location also supports the work of regional visual and craft artists. Located on the southwest corner of Churchill Square, TIX is a vibrant source of unique gifts that reflect Edmonton's story and landscape.
TIX was created by the Edmonton Arts Council in 1999. Originally intended to operate as a rush ticket booth it has developed into a vital hub connecting local artists and community groups with audiences. TIX supports the arts community with a variety of professional services including box office, media relations support, and social media promotion, all for a nominal fee.
As Edmonton's Arts and Culture Concierge TIX helps audiences navigate the city's thriving entertainment scene: making it easy to find events, arts organizations and venues; purchase tickets; and more. Its low service fees, helpful staff, and retail space make TIX an antidote to many of the woes of commercial ticketing options.
Through its professional services, TIX is where local goes live: simple, service-focused box office & communications support for individuals, organizations, institutions and associations producing events, concerts, or fundraisers.
In spring 2011, TIX extended its role to connect audiences with Edmonton's visual and craft artists and began operating a retail space, taking over the operations of The Edmonton City Store. The retail space features a wide-range of unique, handcrafted products including pottery, jewelry, photography, fabric arts and more. TIX also showcases books from local authors, CDs by regional musicians, and historic prints from the City of Edmonton Archives.
