Scarborough Arts is an evolving community arts organization serving Scarborough with programs and services that support artistic growth and foster a culturally aware community. Founded in 1978, Scarborough Arts was established under the name Arts Scarborough, with operating grants from the City of Scarborough and the Ontario Arts Council to promote artistic growth in the community. A membership base was established and initial programs were built. A reassessment of the organization took place in the mid-80s, and by 1989, Arts Scarborough was redeveloped as the Scarborough Arts Council.

Scarborough Arts relocated to its current location at a city-owned property on the Scarborough Bluffs in 1992. Gallery space was created at this facility for the exhibition and sale of members work and has since developed to include exhibitions from non-members and partner organizations. Scarborough Arts maintained a solid roster of programs for many years and places great emphasis on its partnerships with other exceptional community organizations. In 2010 the organization changed its name again to Scarborough Arts.

Scarborough Arts has served the community through the arts for over 40 years, and will continue to improve on delivering this mission in the years to come with fresh and innovative programs and services that enhance the cultural life of Scarborough.

Scarborough Arts is one of six Local Arts Service Organizations (LASOs) in the City of Toronto. LASOs are mandated by the City of Toronto to serve a specific geographic area and provide inclusive and affordable opportunities for local residents, artists, and arts organizations, with a focus on underserved children, youth, and participants from a broad demographic spectrum. As anchor community arts organizations in Toronto, they promote the arts at the local level, making culture a part of the daily fabric of community living.

The other five LASOs are Arts Etobicoke, East End Arts, Lakeshore Arts, North York Arts, and UrbanArts
