Proposed Cultural Hub – Online Public Survey

Island in Halifax Harbour

Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts to help shape the vision and facility planning for a proposed new cultural hub on the Halifax Waterfront. The online public survey is now closed.

Architecture49, along with representatives from the government, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) and Develop Nova Scotia (previously Waterfront Development) will also be holding sessions in July with specific stakeholders. These stakeholders include, NSCAD staff and faculty, and others with a specific interest in the proposed hub.

If the project proceeds to the design and construction phases, there will be other opportunities for public engagement. The proposed cultural hub will help position Nova Scotia as a world leader in the visual arts, educate the province’s future creative industries leaders and create new public space to celebrate, and showcase, our arts and culture.

The province announced earlier this year that it is exploring the development of a new cultural hub which would bring together the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and a new NSCAD campus in one location on the waterfront. The hub would also include public space to showcase and celebrate the province’s culture.
