I am pleased to share with you that the Theatre Centre has completed its fundraising campaign. As an important space for artists and creatives in our community, the success of this campaign ensure that the Theatre Centre will continue to play a vital role in Toronto's arts scene.
The campaign successfully raised $6.2 million in private and public contributions towards revitalizing the former Carnegie Library in West Queen West and transforming it into an vital local arts hub and incubator. Through a Section 37 Community Benefits Agreement from nearby development, the City of Toronto is contributing $250,000 towards this landmark artistic space.
In honour of his 13 years of hard work and dedication which make all of this possible, the mainspace theatre was named in recognition of Theatre Centre Artistic Director and visionary, Franco Boni. Thank you to Franco for all of efforts and to Hon. Margaret Norrie McCain whose continued support helped to make this commemoration possible.
