Five years after its opening, Place des Arts will have generated several impacts:

  • Due to its attractiveness, the Place des Arts significantly contributed to the development of Downtown Greater Sudbury; on an annual basis, more than 60,000 people visited one of its many spaces; the Bistro became one of Greater Sudbury’s favourite spots.
  • The Francophone culture of Greater Sudbury is more dynamic than ever thanks to the many partnerships that were established with artists, organizations and institutions from the region and elsewhere.
  • Artists and cultural and community workers chose to stay or return to live in Sudbury.
  • The enriched cultural life helps increase the number of tourists who choose the Greater Sudbury region as a destination or an important stop.
  • The Place des Arts is an open place for the whole community that serves a variety of users and audiences.
