Arts Centre Feasibility Study
  • A Meeting Place for Cochranes Performing and
    Fine Arts Communities

Culture Master Plan
  • Significant Town Growth and Existing Cultural
    Facilities have Limited Capacity
  • Citizens Want to Maintain Western Small Town
    Character
  • Downtown seen as the primary Social, Culture and
    Entertainment Heart of Cochrane
  • Citizens expect most Culture Needs to be met in
    town
  • Public prefers the development of a multi-purpose
    recreation culture facility
  • Future recreation and culture facilities should
    be sustainable, both economically and
    environmentally
  • Expectation of economic partnerships and user
    fees
  • Source HarGroup Management Consultants

Vision for an Arts Centre

    Disability and Cultural Inclusiveness) - Physical
    Location (Central, Near Pathways) -
    Multifunctional accommodating a Variety of User
    Groups
  • Continual Usage (not just big events)
  • Commercial Partnership
  • Distinctive Programmes - e.g. Film Making School
    / Recording Studio
  • Source Arts Cochrane Survey

Economic Sustainability

    non-profit groups

    Studio / Art Gallery

  • Be Prepared set the stage for the next steps in

14
Planned Approach
  • Committee to first focus on the What (i.e.
    functional requirements)
  • Consultation with other groups is critical to
    avoid duplication of effort - e.g. Town Hall Land
    Re-designation
  • The Where should follow the What - need to
    avoid getting sidetracked by various land
    options but to maintain awareness of opportunities

15
Arts Community Survey
  • Engage key stakeholders the public
  • Define functional requirements - space
    (performance, rehearsal, exhibition) - acoustical
    lighting (potential for different equipment
    needs) - seating capacity
  • Identify Potential Partnerships - commercial
    (e.g. book store) - multifunctional (e.g. coffee
    shop with small stage) - sharing with other
    institutions (e.g. schools) - all levels of
    government grants
  • Input from User Groups - how and how often will
    the facility be in use - assessment of operating
    costs and revenue for sustainability to gauge
    the fundraising effort needed

16
Location… Location… Location
  • Various Options - Old Town Hall Site - Current
    Pool Site - Rodeo Grounds (partnership with Lions
    Club) - Domtar Site - Land adjacent to the
    Library - Spray Lakes Arena site - RancheHouse
    expansion - Other ??
  • Downtown location connected to the pathway system
    is the public preference would contribute to
    the revitalization effort (HarGroup survey)

17
Next Steps
  • Public and Arts Groups Surveys - compilation and
    analysis by early Q2
  • Communication Plan - Input needed from all
    stakeholders (e.g. Service Clubs, User Groups,
    Public)
