Imagine a vibrant centre of the arts in the heart of downtown Halifax that will supercharge Nova Scotia’s entertainment scene, with hundreds of music, theatre, and dance presentations and film screenings each year.

Imagine a media production centre that will provide studio space and the latest technology for film, television and virtual reality content creators.

Imagine a creative industries launchpad where the next generation of Atlantic Canada's storytellers and creative thinkers can work, play and collaborate, creating opportunities for artists, innovators and all who thrive on the power of ideas.
