Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts
Officially opening in the fall of 2014, the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts is a new home for the creative arts at Queen’s and a new hub of vibrant artistic study, creation and exhibition in our community. The learning experiences shaped by the Isabel will enhance our students’ skills and abilities for their work in the arts and beyond.
Situated on the shores of Lake Ontario, the Isabel brings together exceptional spaces and programs with a captivating sense of place to create a dynamic venue for our students and community to learn, discover, think, do, and experience, together.
The School of Music, Department of Film and Media, Department of Drama, and Bachelor of Fine Art program will share state-of-the-art teaching, performance and exhibition spaces within the Isabel. Between 200 and 250 film, music, and drama students will take classes at the facility each day.
As well as beautiful, light-filled classrooms overlooking the lake, the Isabel offers:
- a production studio
- film editing suites
- studio theatre
- film screening room
- art and media lab
The inaugural season of the Isabel will feature celebrated Canadian artists and world-class performers.
