As the Francis Winspear Centre for Music approaches its 20th year as one of Edmonton’s arts jewels in the downtown core, the organization is seeking to fulfill the City’s original requirements for the land and serve long-term needs identified by the community. What is now a surface parking lot will be transformed into a mixed-use building that integrates immersive arts experiences with practical commercial uses, including a childcare centre, with approximately 58,000 sq. ft. of additional cultural space.

The Winspear Centre Completion Project will feature a 540-seat multi-use acoustic hall, studio space, flexible education and programming space and improved support space for the users of the entire facility. This project will become the home base for the community programming offered through the Tommy Banks Place for Musical Creativity and allow increased capacity for education, outreach and partnership with sister arts organizations and business partners.
