Gas Station Arts Centre Initiatives
The Gas Station Arts Centre (GSAC) has been exploring the possible redevelopment and rebuilding of the Arts Centre at River and Osborne. Faced with challenges posed by aging facilities, future options for the site are being considered.
The goal is to continue to meet the needs of the GSAC as an operational theatre, production centre and cultural hub as well as the broader Osborne Village neighbourhood. The GSAC continues to raise the profile of Winnipeg by being a hub of urban arts activity in Osborne Village, the city’s most densely “award winning” populated neighbourhood.
Possibilities to redevelop the site will include:
• a new and improved performing arts centre
• remediation of the property grounds
• options for mixed-use affordable housing
• an expanded commercial space to cater to neighbourhood residents
