Performance Space

With its soaring windows to the north and the stylish acoustic wall to the south, the CKUA Performance Space is both chic and multi-functional.

Wired for your technical needs and adaptable to any configuration, this striking space was designed to welcome the public and the surrounding arts community.  Its grand atmosphere is enhanced by floor-to-ceiling glass at the back of the room, facing the park to the west. The main entrance is through the front lobby, with a feature wall portraying our iconic CKUA 580 AM mural. We also provide a green room, a catering kitchen and accessible washrooms.
