Creative Ideas

Flexible forms of exhibition space for the arts – venues that are home to all forms of music, dance, theatre, and video art, – are not new. However, consideration should be given to the imaginative use not only of libraries, community centres, theatres, art galleries, museums, and concert halls, but of Canada’s heritage buildings and monuments.

Here, as everywhere, human beings have created symbols of permanence, – legacies that endure and tell something of the story of those who came before. If the organizations operating these sites are willing to go beyond a conventional concept of their use, perhaps with the contributions of the community, much opportunity exists to place creativity at the heart of the community.
