Canada proud to renew its support for creation of new youth dance and theatre performance venue in Sherbooke

Canadian Heritage

Today, the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Quebec Lieutenant Pablo Rodriguez announced an additional contribution of $2,700,000 to the City of Sherbrooke.

This amount confirms the federal government’s support for the creation of a new performance venue beside the Centre des arts de la scène Jean-Besré. Specializing in youth dance and theatre, this new hall will offer performers, staff and the audience state-of-the-art equipment and artistic installations.

This Canada Cultural Spaces Fund Program investment is being added to Canadian Heritage’s initial $2.7 million in funding for the City of Sherbrooke in 2017. The Government of Canada is doubling its initial investment to $5.4 million.

Quebec’s Ministry of Culture and Communications, the City of Sherbrooke and the Côté scène organization are the other partners in the project.
