The Globe and Mail published an interview on November 24 with Jeff Melanson, President of The Banff Centre, regarding his ambitious plans to expand the Banff Centre. From the interview:
Melanson’s ambitious strategy includes radio stations, a TV channel, a publishing venture, more website offerings and eventually – 2017 sounds good, being Canada’s 150th anniversary – moving the performance spaces into downtown Banff, giving the Centre badly needed new venues, and the town a cultural injection and architectural facelift.
Theatre Alberta and Alberta Playwrights’ Network recently partnered with The Banff Centre in September to present PlayWorks Ink 2013 at the Centre. We wish them all the best in their expansion plans!
