Evergreen Cultural Centre
May 1, 2018
The Evergreen Cultural Centre, a registered charitable organization and not-for-profit society, opened its doors in October 1996 in the new Town Centre in Coquitlam, British Columbia. A shared vision of the City of Coquitlam, the Tri-City arts community, private business and senior government, it is a facility and organization committed to providing excellence in arts and culture. Evergreen is operated by the Evergreen Cultural Centre Society and governed by a Board of Directors. It is funded by the City of Coquitlam, as well as federal, provincial and foundation sources, box office revenue and corporate sponsorship. The centre houses a 257-seat, flexible black box theatre and a 1500 square foot public art gallery. The Rehearsal Studio and several art or meeting studios provide an additional 5000 square feet of space for Evergreen’s classes, workshops and rentals while the spacious glassed-in Lobby offers a spectacular view of Lafarge Lake. The Evergreen Cultural Centre presents a variety of arts programs including professional theatre, dance and music presentations, art exhibitions, arts education programs, and public programs for both children and adults, including arts camps. For young audiences it also produces its own family series and spring break festival. In addition, the centre is a venue for numerous community-based arts groups providing much needed rehearsal, performance and teaching space. In 2017, over 80,000 visitors came to the Evergreen Cultural Centre to participate in the many offerings throughout the year.

What is the Evergreen Cultural Centre Board?
The Evergreen Cultural Centre Board’s mandate is to oversee the role that the Cultural Centre plays in providing performing and visual artistic offerings to Coquitlam and the northeast section of the Greater Vancouver Regional District. In doing so, we become key components in the vibrant arts scene of our community and in the way in which the arts are viewed by citizens of all ages and backgrounds.
The board supports the Centre’s Executive Director, staff and volunteers – people that are among the most enthusiastic and highly motivated you will find anywhere. The Board is extremely proud of their efforts and contributions and this working relationship is one to cherish and continually nurture. It is a major factor in the success of the Evergreen Cultural Centre.
