Varsity Center for the Arts

The wonderful people at CCA and the Stage Company are asking you (Yes, you) to help them plan the future of the "Varsity Center for the Arts" by meeting at the Civic Center at 7 p.m. on July 23. Here's your invitation (Thanks to Roxanne Conley):

Carbondale Community Arts and the Jackson County Stage Company are working together to envision a future Varsity Center for the Arts” that can serve as an anchor for downtown Carbondale and a resource for area civic, art, and cultural entities.

To help determine the community needs and wants, we began by launching an assessment of the space and public access needs (as well as wants, hopes, and dreams) of area artists, presenters and civic organizations through a short survey. Over 95 copies of the survey were distributed throughout our community by e-mail and regular mail.

In addition, a review of all available prior studies and surveys
relating to downtown redevelopment since 1984 was conducted to
determine community support for an arts center in downtown Carbondale.

With these preliminaries completed, we would like to open up the process to everyone in the community: give us your ideas, your hopes, and your dreams in regard to the transformation of the old Varsity Theater into the “Varsity Center for the Arts.”

Please join us Wednesday, July 23
7-9 PM
at the Carbondale Civic Center.

At that time we invite you to share your ideas about how to best enable the “Varsity Center for the Arts” to live up to its name! We hope to also provide updates on progress to date by the Stage Company and the Varsity Center for the Arts.

It’s a time for all of us to come together and plan for our future and the future of downtown
