Our Vision for #ANewHome
Even before the roof collapse, Indefinite Arts Centre partnered with DIALOG architects to begin a complete rethink around our facility and develop a long-term vision for what we envisioned the most ideal, accessible home could be for our artists.
Obviously, the roof collapse changed the scope of our work.
No longer are we envisioning a renovation project, but a complete rebuild that would not only create a brand new, purpose-built, accessible multidisciplinary arts space for artists with disabilities, but also a community-based arts hub that would re-energize the local communities of Fairview, Acadia, and beyond – creating a space that would be open to use by children, local artists, and community arts groups that currently do not have access to affordable spaces to rehearse and perform.
The new National accessArts Centre project would house an expanded visual/digital media centre, a flexible black box theatre, as well as a social enterprise space with galleries, craft stores, and a community-focused cafe.
In total, the project is estimated at $19.1 million.
