Bard on the BEach ECONOMIC PLANNING
Location: Vancouver, BC
Client: Bard on the Beach Theatre Society
Bard on the Beach is western Canada’s flagship Shakespeare festival, welcoming more than 100,000 to 200 performances each year. Bard has embarked on a visionary planning effort for a new facility in Vancouver with the potential to provide a more permanent home for the theatre’s operations and performances. This move will yield significant operational and economic opportunities.
KO Projects was engaged to undertake both conceptual work examining Bard’s current economic systems and institutional objectives, as well as technical analyses of the operational and financial impacts of the possible capital project. This unique institution with few comparators worldwide is charting its own course towards a sustainable future that grows increasingly relevant to the communities it serves.
