Performing Arts Venues Study - Managing Our Performance Spaces

Canada Council,
28 December 2002, Canada

Out of concern to better serve the community and to adequately and harmoniously develop the performing arts sector in the country, the Canada Council for the Arts has wanted for some time to acquire the data needed to develop or revise its programs and policies. Specifically, the Council, hopes through this report to give organizations that manage performing arts facilities in Canada guidance and tools that will help them assess the impact on their operations of any construction or renovation work or even of just simply managing such premises (for creation, production and/or performance).

This study is similar to other recently published studies; it aims to reinforce support mechanisms and recommend changes to the programs and grant application forms of the various federal partners. In short, the study's findings are designed to improve the assessment process.
