New West Centre for the Arts

After years of dreaming about having a central location for all of New West to call home, we have been given an amazing opportunity to lease a terrific space significantly below market value.

Announcing: New West Centre for the Arts

New West Centre for the Arts will be located in a central area of Calgary that will be a home for each division of New West to rehearse, practice, learn and grow.

New West Centre for the Arts means a stronger New West, which will lead to new and innovative events and, ultimately, will give us more ways to connect with people in our community!

New West Centre for the Arts creates a tremendous facility that gives New West more opportunities to collaborate with and support other faith-based arts groups in our city!

As part of this leasing opportunity, we will be able to build out the space to meet our unique needs as a multi-faceted arts organization, including:

  • Two halls for rehearsals and recitals
  • Three classrooms
  • On-site indoor storage for our extensive music library
  • Secure, outdoor storage for our equipment truck

The time is RIGHT and the time is NOW! Between now and the fall of 2024 (the start of our 15th season!), we will be busy creating an arts space that will allow us to efficiently pour our collective efforts into building a stronger community and creating even more opportunities to share joy and hope through our “music with a purpose” focus.


Our goal is to raise $100,000 for this project in 2024.  Funds raised will:

  • Cover the incremental increase in monthly studio/rehearsal space rental costs
  • Allow us to construct classrooms for outstanding music instruction
  • Provide acoustical treatment for the performance spaces
  • Enable New West to acquire the necessary equipment and furniture for our rehearsals, recitals, classrooms and music library

Be a part of this exciting chapter in New West’s history!  Founding Sponsors of NWCA will have the unique opportunity to help create Calgary’s only collaborative faith-based arts centre.  Yes, besides being a “home” for New West’s performance ensembles and our Music Academy, it our plan to make NWCA available for other faith centered arts organizations to rehearse and perform, creating a shared space to build a stronger arts community in our city.
