On March 2, 2017 The Canadian Network for Arts and Learning presented its first Eduarts Hub outside of Ontario. This event was presented in partnership with the Winspear Centre. It included a presentation regarding the activities of the Winspear Centre and remarks by a representative from the Edmonton Arts Council. CNAL’s Executive Director, Angela Elster, updated attendees on CNAL's research study to reenergize UNESCO’s goals for the development of arts education (the SEOUL Agenda), and led a conversation about the current digital Mapping Project - a detailed representation of arts & learning across Canada. Network with your peers to explore collaborative and partnership opportunities with other arts and learning professionals from a variety of sectors.

The Francis Winspear Centre for Music is the physical - and spiritual - home of music in Edmonton. Artists and community are at the heart of Winspear’s success. The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra (ESO)has grown into a truly great ensemble whose members care deeply about music and it’s importance and place in Edmonton. The Winspear reaches out the broader community through the Tommy Banks Institute for Musical Creativity. The Banks, through learning programs and community partnerships, encourages Edmontonian’s of every age and circumstance to make music central to their lives.
The Winspear Centre, through the concert hall, Edmonton Symphony and the Banks, seeks to inspire a feeling of pride, to boost Edmonton's economy and attractiveness, and to reveal to the community the magic, wonder and transformational power of music.
