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.
