Update on Okotoks Arts and Learning Campus

All the partners involved with the Okotoks’ Arts and Learning Campus were at the Recreation Centre on October 2 to provide an update on plans for the new facility.

Overview

The Arts and Learning Campus aims to create a new and vibrant hub for downtown Okotoks. The campus will provide post secondary and high school opportunities as well as expand the current library’s services. The project will also include a new outdoor gathering and event space.
