The Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge manages Casa on behalf of the City of Lethbridge.

Casa opened in May of 2013 and has embraced core concepts of experimentation, incubation, learning and growing. Serving a multi-generational community, with varying art skill sets and interests in all disciplines of the arts, Casa is a busy space. The building far surpasses the original vision for expansion and sets a new standard for interdisciplinary arts centres.

Designing the building was a comprehensive and collaborative process led by Pendergast Nyhoff Collaborative Architecture (PNCA) working in conjunction with the local architectural firm of Ferrari Westwood Babits. The Architectural team visited numerous arts education institutions and also met with members of the local arts community to define requirements for a truly functional 42,000 square foot art centre. The resulting building design is truly impressive.

Funding for the project was provided by the Federal Build Canada Fund ($6,000,000), the Provincial MSI Fund ($14,900,000) and the City of Lethbridge ($200,000).

The Allied Arts Council manages Lethbridge Public Art on behalf of the City of Lethbridge.

Public Art helps to enhance a community’s landscape and foster civic pride. The City of Lethbridge allocates 1% of community service capital budgets for the purchase of public art. A Public Art Master Plan has been developed and includes policies and procedures for acquiring public art.

 Information on current projects is updated on a regular basis and public art calls are posted as they arise.
