The Jasper Community Habitat for the Arts opened its doors on July 1st 2016.
This is Jaspers’ first dedicated community space for exploring the arts, any of its disciplines, and for all ages. A place to share expertise, experience something new or be entertained.
The space was designed, from its inception, to be one that could accommodate the arts and artists who would be using the spaces. When we were invited to sit with the architects in 2011 we had no real idea of the light, the wood, the concrete, and how they would work together in making something so truly unique.
This space was always to be one where, in keeping with our mandate, a diverse arts and culture economy could evolve by the transformation of ideas. A place where artists and creative enthusiasts would share common goals to positively influence social and economic sustainability. Those were big words when we established this non profit in 2009!
But Jasper did it… the space is there… the doors are open.
