Downtown Performing Arts Centre

The Downtown Performing Arts Centre will be a specialized, purpose-built and professionally managed facility that will present, promote and develop the arts in Niagara.

The project is being developed in partnership with Brock University, which will be moving the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts to an adjacent location.

This development is key to revitalizing Downtown St. Catharines, the urban growth centre of Niagara, and will add an important new cultural attraction to the region, serving artists, students and arts patrons across the peninsula.
