Canada’s largest outdoor stage set for $2.5 million renovation in Alberta
GOVERNMENT OF ALBERTA — The Badlands Amphitheatre, Canada’s largest outdoor stage, is set to receive $2.95 million worth of renovations thanks to investment from the Government of Alberta and Travel Alberta.

DRUMHELLER, ALTA. — The Government of Alberta has announced a combined investment of $2.57 million to renovate the Badlands Amphitheatre, the largest outdoor stage in Canada.

The province is investing $1.95 million into the renovations in addition to $625,000 from Travel Alberta, reads a news release.

The first phase of the project will consist of replacing 1,400 seats in the lower amphitheatre. Phase two will replace 1,100 seats in the upper theatre and see the construction of a new grandstand with shade cover and washrooms.

The Canadian Badlands Passion Play Society has also nearly completed the construction of a new 8,000-square-foot Badlands Arts Centre and Studio.

“The Badlands Amphitheatre is a staple of Alberta’s arts scene, providing Albertans the opportunity to experience the arts in a unique way,” said Tanya Fir, minister of arts, culture and status of women, in the release.

“We will continue to find ways to ensure Alberta remains a first-class destination for arts and culture connoisseurs.”

Hearing loss affects many people and it is estimated that 10% of the population have this condition. Another statistic is by the age of 65, one person in two have a hearing loss. While hearing aids if property fitted will restore 60 % of the hearing loss. The further the sound has to travel, the sound level decreases and background noise increases. It is a real challenge for the hard of hearing to understand the spoken word in public places. The solution is to install a hearing loop and the best time to install a hearing loop is during construction or renovations. A hearing loop provides for a signal to noise increae of 25 decibels.

It is great to see investment in arts and culture.
Smoky Lake is trying to save a portion of a school built in 1987 for a regional art gallery and studio but the school board is insisting on demolition.
