Town approves new arts centre

The Town of Canmore has taken the opportunity to create a vibrant centre for the arts that will fulfill a long held need and engage the whole community.

On Tuesday (Nov. 6), the community arts centre advisory committee made its final push for council to adopt a plan to redevelop the library, which will move to Elevation Place next year, for a space that will showcase, provide programs and act as a central hub for artists in the community.

“Canmore holds a true grassroots movement. Artists and volunteer groups have invested time and effort to grow their art. The dedication of those people has brought the Canmore arts scene to where it is today,” said Dea Fischer, chair of the committee during her presentation to council.
