Located along the shores of Lake Ontario in Kingston, the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts opened in September 2014 and is home to the creative arts at Queen’s. Embracing the principles of interactivity and integration, the School of Music, Department of Film and Media, Department of Drama, and Bachelor of Fine Art program share the teaching and performance spaces within the Isabel.
Queen’s benefactors Alfred and Isabel Bader initiated the project through a very generous donation. Other funders include the governments of Canada and Ontario and the City of Kingston. The Centre’s building, designed by Snohetta and N45Architects (a partnership of two firms) incorporate the existing heritage buildings of the Morton’s brewery (1840), stable buildings, and the Stella Buck building into the modern facility.
