Thanks to a significant federal government grant (and one of only four awarded in Western Canada), a 5,000 square foot Arts Centre is now under construction adjacent to our current production centre which was built in 2001. This new addition will enable us to better protect our audience in a safe, indoor space when we need to provide shelter during weather incidents.
It will provide much-needed extra rehearsal and production space for the Passion Play cast and crew. Finally, the Badlands Arts Centre will allow us to expand our programming past the summer season as we serve growing audiences with new events, which will in turn both improve our bottom line and increase our economic impact in the region.
Simply, the Badlands Arts Centre will help to ensure the ongoing success of the Canadian Badlands Passion Play and the Badlands Amphitheatre.
- Federal grant received for the Badlands Art Centre: $200,000
- Donations received to date: $204,000
- Funds still needed: $181,000
