    The exiting of the Georgian College Theatre lease was a recommendation submitted to Council in response to the theatre space becoming unsafe for use and requiring significant investment in a fiscally challenging year, coupled with ongoing uncertainty created by the COVID-related gathering restrictions. It’s believed that this decision will allow all parties to refocus energy and resources in support of the need for a proper theatre that will be built with future needs embedded in its design.

    Staff are committed to working with the arts and culture community in the interim to leverage existing spaces and facilities to provide performance space. In response to Council direction regarding the 2021 budget and the future of the Fisher Project, staff have begun outreach regarding options that might be available to help support user groups. Interim solutions will be developed and full engagement with artistic and cultural groups will take place.

    As an active community member with performing arts and an educator, I am asking for City Councillors to consider start meeting with the artistic community to start planning and consultation now. Please do not wait until 2022 to start these discussions. We need to be planning now! Bring us to the table to be part of the solution. We are excited about supporting a vibrant and complete picture of Cultural activities and programming in our city.
