Located along the shores of Lake Ontario in Kingston, the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, scheduled to open in 2014, will be a cultural beacon and provide urgently needed recital, theatre, screening, and rehearsal space for both Queen’s and the Kingston art community. It will help lay the foundation for an “Arts Campus” for the University, housing the faculties of Music, Drama, Film, and Art.
Queen’s benefactors Alfred and Isabel Bader initiated the project through a very generous donation. Other funders include the governments of Canada and Ontario and the City of Kingston. The Centre’s building, designed by Snohetta / ema Architects (a partnership of two firms) will incorporate the existing heritage buildings of the Morton’s brewery (1840), stable buildings, and the Stella Buck building into the modern facility.
