STATION ARTS CENTRE

Sharing our love of the arts with you!

History & Mission

HISTORY

The Station Arts Centre began as a dream.
Through the hard work, foresight of numerous volunteers and generosity of donors, the Centre has become a vibrant venue promoting the work of Saskatchewan and Canadian artists while providing patrons with ongoing opportunities to enjoy and share experiences with professional and emerging artists in music, visual art and drama. The home of the Station Arts Centre is a renovated CN Railway Station in Rosthern Saskatchewan serving as an art gallery, seminar space, Tea Room and Performing arts Theatre. We present  an annual summer theatre to sold out audiences, providing a unique cultural experience, a peek into the past and good food.

VISION

The Station Arts Centre is at the heart of the cultural and artistic life of the region. A model for a multi-disciplinary regional art centre, it provides a year-round focus for innovative experiences in the arts that attract attention from across Canada. The Station Arts Centre offers new creative opportunities for residents while engaging tourists in the unique culture of the community, including cuisine and living heritage. An indispensable part of the immediate community, the Station Arts Centre is valued for its contribution to the economy, the education of people and the overall quality of life. The Station Arts Centre is a place to gather, celebrate and build community.
