The Fort St. John Community Arts Council is looking for public input on the development of a new Creative Hub for artists in the city. 

The Creative Hub is envisioned to be a long-term, sustainable facility where artists, artisans, performers, musicians, and other creators can pursue their art and develop their skills, the Arts Council said.

“We are seeking input from the arts and culture community to help us determine what spaces and amenities could be included in the facility, the attributes of a preferred locations for the facility, and identify potential revenue and partnership opportunities,” the Arts Council said.

The Arts Council was founded in 1970, and currently operates out of the ArtsPost on 94 Avenue.

It has hired Expedition Management Consulting to help develop the feasibility study, which is scheduled to be completed in December 2021.

An online survey can be completed until Sept. 7 by clicking here. Paper copies of the survey are available on request.

The Arts Council says stakeholder information sessions will be held on Aug. 26 and Sept. 2, with more information to follow.

The study is being done with financial support from Canadian Heritage, the City of Fort St. John, the District of Taylor, and the Peace River Regional District.
