Local 2021 Community Spaces Recipient!Actions
Congratulations to The Canadian Badlands Passion Play Society, who will receive $72,000.00!
As provinces across Western Canada take steps to re-open, Co-op Community Spaces is funding projects that will help bring our Communities back together.
This year, Co-op is providing $72,000 to expand the Badlands Art Centre and make the Amphitheatre more accessible to the many people who visit each year.
“The Badlands Amphitheatre in Drumheller is building a new Arts Centre and Studio Theatre that will be an integral part of the Arts and Cultural scene in the Canadian Badlands. Being chosen as a Community Spaces Funding recipient will allow us to have the facility operational and fully accessible by the winter of 2022. This is an exciting step forward in our development and we are thankful to Federated Co operatives Limited for their support.” Said Vance Neudorf, Drumheller Badlands Amphitheatre.
Co-op Community Spaces has been developed to help protect, beautify and improve spaces across Western Canada. As our Community begins to re-open after the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reminded of the value these projects bring in connecting and improving our Communities.
Co-op is excited to partner with the Canadian Badlands Passion Play Society through the Co-op Community Spaces program. The last 15 months have been very challenging, and it’s such an honor for Westview Co-op to contribute to creating a space for residents to safely come back together.
Investing in our Community is central to our Values as a Co-op. Partnering with Community groups on important projects like this is a natural fit. We are creating beautiful spaces for our Community to enjoy now and for years to come.
In 2021, the program is providing $1 million to 15 Communities projects across Western Canada. Since 2015, Co-op has supported 147 projects with $10.5 million in capital funding.
The giving program is administered by Federated Co-operatives Limited on behalf of more than 160 independent retail co-operatives across Western Canada that form the Co-operative Retailing System.
