The Regional Arts Facilities Select Committee was created by the CRD Board in response to Board Priority 12a-1. Its purpose was to facilitate a public discussion on regional arts facilities in the capital region. Due to Covid19 restrictions the Select Committee made a decision to proceed with the engagement virtually which took place from June-December 2020.


The Select Committee hired a consultant who engaged the CRD community in an exploration of the following topics:

  • a current inventory and oversight of performing art facilities, their functions and roles within the current ecosystem
  • gap analysis
  • consideration of equity including demographic and geographic equity
  • considerations related to the intersection of local and regional interests
  • funding and sustainability
  • challenges
  • suggested modifications and improvements (short and long term)
  • partnerships
  • other relevant issues as may arise

The consultant provided summary reports at each stage of the engagement process. The incremental reports are available at PlaceSpeak

Next Steps

The CRD Board approved a revision to the Select Committee’s Terms of Reference to allow the Committee to continue its work and have directed staff to provide information and options for implementation of the report’s recommendations.
