We are really excited to hear about what you want in the Arts Centre! Past consultation tells us that there have been consistent ideas through time, however, we want to undertake further review to solidify the final "brief": the purposes and essential functions that the building will fulfill.

Your feedback is welcome and sought here; thank you so much for your time and for helping with the creation of this building! We will be following up with in-person meetings and on-going consultation.

Landscaping, gardens, and outdoor performance and exhibition.
Focus on exhibition space (size & versatility).
More storage space.
A workshop and meeting space.
Storage for a permanent and archival collection.
Digital arts capacity (film, sound, projection, etc.).
A sprung floor (for dance & aesthetics).
Retail capacity for earned revenue to maintain the building and basic HIAC operations.
Capacity for food and drink or a café.
Performing arts capacity (stage, sound, theatre, etc.).
Sculpture walk.
A system for dividing up the exhibition space for simultaneous shows.
Create spaces for Artist Residencies.
A dedicated space in which to make art (sinks, tables, racks, tools, etc.).
