Thank you, City of Colwood!

Our February presentation to the City of Colwood included four “asks”, all of which were supported by Council.

  1. THAT Council advance the concept of establishing a performing arts facility in Colwood;
  2. THAT through 2022 budget deliberations $30,000 be allocated in the draft budget to the Juan de Fuca Performing Arts Centre Society (JDF PACS) to advance the concept of performing arts facility
  3. AND THAT Council support the Juan de Fuca Performing Arts Centre Society (JDF PACS) to explore a West Shore performing arts facility through the West Shore Parks and Recreation Society model;
  4. AND FURTHER THAT in principle, Council consider the phase-in of a future annual operating contribution towards an arts and culture facility in Colwood.

You can find the presentation and discussion on the City of Colwood website (February 7 Committee of the Whole).

We were honoured to work with Dr. Sandy Walker and the entire cohort of MBA learners at Royal Roads University. The 2022 Leadership Challenge participants researched and provided advice to PACS on the benefits that will arise from an arts and culture centre, ways to build community support for the project, and ways to actively and respectfully include local First Nations in these discussions.
