About The Venue
The High River Performing Arts Foundation is leading the development of a 12000 sq ft accessible, inclusive and collaborative, creative and performing arts hub to advance the appreciation of the arts and provide a public amenity to those living in and travelling through High River and the Foothills region of Southern Alberta.
The Venue will be an economic driver to the town of High River while providing entertainment, inspiration, education and mentorship opportunities to seniors, adults, teens and children from all cultural and economic backgrounds.
Professional and emerging arts entrepreneurs will thrive with access to purpose built facilities, professional equipment and increased opportunities to learn, perform, create and collaborate.
The Venue will offer an authentic theatre for performances and well equipped multidisciplinary studios for creating and teaching. This cultural landmark will enhance the landscape and diversity of the downtown core and provide greater opportunity for all generations of artists and patrons.
The Venue will be a hub of creative energy and ideas. New found opportunities for collaboration and mentorship will enhance the work that happens in the building while bringing life to the core of High River.
A wide variety of artists call Southern Alberta home because the wider community has valued their courage and perseverance. It is time to solidify this legacy by providing a state of the art facility that will enable performers and artists to develop their skills and share their talents...locally and around the world.
The Venue will serve young musicians, actors, directors, stage hands, painters, sculptors, recording engineers and producers for generations to come. Experience in our state of the art facilities will provide the newest generations with the skills to step into the world, or stay at home, with confidence, skill and passion.
The facility will give all generations a place to find entertainment and inspiration in a world class venue for performing and creating in Southern Alberta. With land secured on 5th avenue and conceptual planning complete, we are ready to move into our next phase of fundraising.
