    To support the needs of the local arts and culture community, the municipality is excited to announce that consultant Nordicity, in partnership with Giaimo Architects, is conducting a feasibility study for a cultural centre(s) in Kawartha Lakes.

    “Kawartha Lakes has a vibrant arts, culture and heritage sector and our cultural assets are central to our quality of life,” commented Donna Goodwin, Arts and Culture Economic Development Officer, City of Kawartha Lakes. “Home to a variety of talented artists, musicians, performers and cultural spaces, we attract people and new investments each year. But just as our municipality evolves and changes, so too does our arts and cultural community. To support that growth, we need to ensure we have the appropriate infrastructure and programming in place.”

    The feasibility study will include community consultations, a market assessment, operations modelling and location analysis. Future community needs will be identified and there will be an assessment of existing cultural infrastructure and financial resources.
