  • Consultation with other groups is critical to

    avoid getting sidetracked by various land
    options but to maintain awareness of opportunities

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
