The Clarion Project
The Clarion Project will create an enhanced creative environment at the University of Saskatchewan that will promote innovative arts and multi-disciplinary programming, and ultimately result in the construction of a new fine and performing arts facility. This facility will be a place to create and strengthen partnerships between the university and the community, and will fill a niche for community groups who want to host small-to-medium-sized cultural events.
In an effort to better define the Clarion Project, the steering committee undertook a series of design sessions. The first recommended a series of principles that will guide all aspects of development. The second explored location and scope, with reference to the academic plan and principles. The steering committee is committed to a creative architectural solution that is both visually and aesthetically stunning, but also very functionally creative in terms of how the departments will relate to each other and share their focus and expertise.
