The Town to receive $1M Grant toward The Guild Performing Arts Venue Project

The Town of Hinton has received a $1 million dollar grant under the Cultural Spaces Fund, from the Federal Department of Canadian Heritage. Culture plays a key role in Hinton’s social, cultural and economic development, as vehicles for growth, urban renewal, and effective marketing of Hinton. 

As your Member of Parliament, I am pleased to hear that the
Town of Hinton’s application to the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund
Grant for their Arts Venue Renovation in the amount of $1M has
been approved. The new Arts Venue Project will transform Hinton’s
existing Guild Building into a 150+ performance arts venue, providing
home for numerous arts organizations.  Congratulations Hinton!”

concluded MP Eglinski.

This grant will assist in the success of the Performing Arts Venue build, which has a tentative completion time of fall 2017. The construction and full buildout costs have an estimated budget of $5.4 million with $2.5 million secured funds to-date. The budget supports a renovation that will allow a full performing arts venue to be realized for our community – providing a full theatre experience to those who perform and attend. This community space will also support an open floor plan that can be used for a variety of other functions.
