Name the New Community Arts Centre!

The City of Lethbridge is presently providing the opportunity for the public to participate in submitting names for the building. The Community Arts Centre will be an incubator for arts activities for years to come and the public is encouraged to participate in the naming process by submitting creative names that fit the vision of this iconic civic building.     The criteria that the names are being selected on are as follows: • The name will provide a fresh and exciting identity with a modern and contemporary appeal. • The name will be easy to brand; something that lends itself to graphic interpretation. • The name will be unique to this building; not to be confused with other buildings, parks or locations. • The name will preferably be short, or something that can easily be shortened. • The name will be inclusive of all the arts- not exclusive to one or a few. • The name will be easy to remember, something that attracts interest or attention.     Submission forms are available on the City, Allied Arts Council, and University websites. Submissions are being accepted until noon on Friday December 28th, 2012. Submissions must be kept to one page (including any supporting material that submitters wish to include) and should be sent to lori.harasem@lethbridge.ca. More than one submission per individual will be accepted.     The naming committee will review all submissions over the month of January and will make a recommendation to City Council in early February. City Council will have the final approval of the name. Any questions regarding the Community Arts Centre or the naming process can be directed to the City of Lethbridge Recreation and Culture at 403.320.4716.
