Water Works Studios in Wetaskiwin officially open

Water Works Studios had their grand opening Sept.15, 2020.

Wetaskiwin’s new fine arts hub has officially opened its doors to the public. On Sept. 15, 2020 Water Works Studios held its grand opening with members of the public, Wetaskiwin Chamber and Wetaskiwin City Council present.

“We want people to use this space,” says Bill Tozer, one of the main organizers for the creation of Water Works Studios and a guitar teacher at the new location, You can rent it for a dance class, a meeting, and arts class, to teach an instrument. We want this space to be buzzing seven days a week, contributing to the arts and culture of Wetaskiwin.”

Water Works Studios is a space for classes of all sorts, including dance, vocal, art, instruments and more and was developed out of the need for a larger community space to rent for more fine art opportunities in the community.

“We got so busy at the theatre and had so much stuff we ran out of room. So it made sense to move to a completely accessible place, and to expand what the theatre society was already doing,” says Tozer.

Wetaskiwin City Councillors showed their support at the grand opening, presenting Water Works Studios with a plaque celebrating this achievement.

“On behalf of the City we are delighted that you are contributing to the health of our community through this venture and wish you many, many years of success,” Wetaskiwin City Councillor Wayne Nielson said at the grand opening.
