Performing Arts Centre Preliminary Report Unveiling

Kamloops, B.C. – The Performing Arts Centre Committee, in conjunction with the City of Kamloops, is pleased to share the preliminary business case on a proposed performing art centre in Kamloops. In recognition of the strong desire from the public to learn more about this project, the City is hosting a meeting to share information as soon as it has become available.

The purpose of this initial meeting is to recap what has been done to date; what has been heard from the community; location and site selection; potential footprint to illustrate the components and size; and a cost overview, including a preliminary funding strategy. 

This report is based on input received from community stakeholder groups, including the business community, the arts community and the general public, through strategic brainstorming sessions and open houses.

The public and interested parties are invited to attend the unveiling of the preliminary feasibility report, with a presentation by Mayor Peter Milobar and staff. The meeting will take place:

7:00 pm
Parkside Lounge, Interior Savings Centre

A follow up meeting will take place at Interior Savings Centre from 10 am to 12 noon on Saturday, April 18th, during which residents can provide their feedback on the report as presented. Input will be used by City Council, the committee and the consultants to further refine the proposal as a lead up to another public engagement session.
