Queen's new home for the performing arts

[Updated] Thanks to infrastructure funding announced recently from federal, provincial, and civic governments, plus some very generous private gifts, Queen's is set to break ground on the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts. The striking waterfront complex is designed by Norwegian firm Snohetta and Canadian firm ema. 

Features of the Centre include a 550-seat concert hall, studio theatre, art gallery, screening room, and cafe. This will be the centrepiece in achieving Queen's vision to create an "arts campus": integrated curriculum and space for the School of Music, Department of Film & Media, and the Department of Drama.
