Mayor's Arts Visioning Committee Recommends the Creation of New Performing Arts Spaces

The Mayor's Arts Visioning Committee released their report Edmonton Arts 2040: Prosperity with Creativity this week which focused on the development of new arts space in Edmonton.

Here are some hightlights from the report:
  • The City of Edmonton is recommended to acquire and convert MacEwan University's west campus for a multi-use, multicultural arts incubator
  • Develop the former power plant site to a premier Aboriginal arts and cultural celebration centre and studio, exhibit and performance space for Edmonton artists
  • Endorse a landmark performing arts centre in the downtown
  • Establish a business and arts advisory committee to the work with the Edmonton Arts Council
