Founded in 1984, The Toronto Animated Image Society initially began as a group for animators and animation enthusiasts to connect and share in an art form they love.
Over the years TAIS has evolved into an artist-run media arts production centre with a growing membership that supports animation production, presentation, and skills development.
Incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1990, TAIS opened our first studio space in 2002. We became a registered charity in 2012, and then in 2013 we moved to our current home, a 1560 sq.foot space located on Dufferin Street north of Dupont, in downtown Toronto’s north/west-end. This facility allows us to better facilitate artists’ research and creation, and deliver public outreach programs.


Our logo was designed by founding member James Caswell, an educator and artist working in the GTA for over 30 years.
