Why do we need a « Place des Arts » ?

Because Greater Sudbury has a thriving local arts community and unique expertise in cultural development.

Because this professional community has been telling us for many years that there is a need for an arts centre geared to its quest for artistic excellence and growing audiences and participation.

Because today’s consumers and participants are looking for more engaging outings, where their creativity and sense of belonging are enhanced by memorable experiences shared with others.

Because of its strategic contribution to the redevelopment of the downtown, drawing some 50,000 people downtown yearly, mostly at night and on weekends when it needs it the most.

Making possible and accessible quality cultural and artistic experiences, which have a lasting impact on the lives of citizens and contribute to the development and the well being of the Francophone and Greater Sudbury communities.
