artsPlace - Canmore Community Arts Centre

artsPlace will be Canmore's community arts centre – a welcoming, user-friendly space where Bow Valley residents and visitors will gather to discover, explore and celebrate the adventure of art. The artsPlace teaching studios, performance studio and gallery commons will be managed by a knowledgeable, eager-to-help staff. The studios will provide a great venue for taking and teaching classes, for performing and watching others perform, for learning about the Valley arts scene and meeting the individuals and groups behind it, and for getting involved with the many Bow Valley activities that inspire and foster creativity.

RMO Town Approves Funding

It looks like the proposed arts centre for the former library in Canmore will reach completion, but a decision to change the scope as a result of budget issues didn’t pass with ease at council this week. The project has been in redesign for six months as a result of tenders for the original design coming in significantly over budget. Over that time, though, changes have been found so that most of the scope for the work inside the facility can be realized without the need to spend $1.4 million on a new roof and mechanical system.
