Open House Looks at Gas Station Arts Centre Redevelopment

By David Klassen

Gas Station Arts CentreAs the Gas Station Arts Centre celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, redevelopment of the facility has been considered an option for quite sometime.

To continue meeting the needs of theatre, production centre and cultural hub in the Osborne Village neighbourhood, an open house is being held on Sunday to show off possible ideas for redevelopment.

They include a new and improved performing arts centre, remediation of the property grounds, options for mixed-use affordable housing, and an expanded commercial space to cater to neighbourhood residents.

The 232-seat theatre fosters artistic expression and enables the creation of arts by providing venues, presentation, production, co-production, education and support services to performers and artists.

The open house runs from 5-7 p.m. tomorrow at 445 River Avenue, with a community meeting prior beginning at 3 p.m.
