Nordicity Engaged to Undertake Arts Centre Feasibility Study for the Town of Collingwood

Original post: 
The Town of Collingwood is pleased to announce that it has engaged Nordicity Group and Giaimo Architects in the undertaking of an arts centre feasibility study for the Town of Collingwood.
Following a competitive bid process, the team of Nordicity and Giaimo, was selected. Nordicity is a leading international consulting firm providing solutions in research, economic analysis, strategy, and policy across multiple sectors including Arts, Culture & Heritage. For this project, Nordicity has partnered with Giaimo, a Toronto-based architectural practice that integrates design with conservation. Giaimo brings with it a unique expertise in working with heritage buildings.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the needs of the arts and cultural sectors in the community, and to determine if and to what degree an arts and cultural centre would be feasible in Collingwood. The process will include a market and audience assessment, stakeholder and public consultation, a design and location analysis, and finally, recommendations on financing and governance.
The project is expected to be completed by late spring, with public engagement opportunities beginning later in February and running into March.
Project details and links to public feedback channels will be posted at
