CACE (Collingwood Art Culture Entertainment) Group is a local grassroots group of citizens who are very passionate and committed to building an arts, culture and entertainment Centre in Collingwood.
Its mission is to build a world-class adaptable, multi-functional arts, culture and entertainment Centre that is commercially viable by attracting major artists and productions while supporting local/regional artists and programs in the region. As well, CACE would:
- Promote all art forms across all ages and abilities.
- Engage the Town of Collingwood, its Council, and residents, surrounding communities and the County of Simcoe.
- Seek professionals for input on all aspects of the project.
- Adhere to the cornerstones of the project: inclusivity, accessibility, sustainability, and community engagement.
For a Centre like this to be built it requires support, participation, and cooperation from all levels of government. When CACE met with government representatives, they were encouraged to hear the consistent expression of optimism and support. There was a recognition of the critical role the arts have played during this unprecedented time with many turning to the arts for inspiration, hope and a little escape from the current pandemic environment.
CACE encourages all residents of the South Georgian Bay area to go to their website www.collingwoodarts.com and register your support for an Arts, Culture, Entertainment Centre in the region.
