Kamloops Centre for the Arts Society Efforts Continue
January 10 to April 4

With memberships sold at school holiday concerts, Kamloops Symphony, Western Canada Theatre and other performances and events over the holidays, Kamloops Centre for the Arts Society memberships are now at 4,500 people. This is a tremendous vote of support for this project.

This new Centre in support of arts & culture in Kamloops is a proposed $70M build to be located on the corner of Seymour St. and 4th Avenue. The Kamloops Centre for the Arts Society was formed in June 2019 to help realize this Centre after the announcement of a very generous donation from Ron and Rae Fawcett to start the project.

If you haven't already, we encourage you to become a member of the Kamloops Centre for the Arts Society for only $2 and share your commitment to this new project. Memberships can be purchased at the Gallery or online through the Kamloops Centre for the Arts Society website. The Business Case demonstrating that this Centre can happen is also on the KCA site.

In preparation for the upcoming referendum, April 4, the City of Kamloops has created a Let's Talk page to also share information about the new Centre and the referendum process.

Together WE CAN build a Centre for community.
