The West Shore needs a community arts and culture centre
To become a truly healthy community, we need a West Shore home for the arts. Millions of taxpayer dollars have been invested in our community’s sports infrastructure, because it helps people to achieve a healthy lifestyle. The health benefits of the arts are proven. It’s time we had the public arts infrastructure we need to truly become a healthy and culturally vibrant community.
Our goal is the creation of a vibrant community arts and culture centre serving the needs of the West Shore and beyond.
“The nonprofit arts and culture industry is an economic driver in communities – a growth industry that supports jobs, generates government revenue, and is a cornerstone of tourism.”
