Khyber Arts Centre, Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia to be relocated


Khyber Arts Centre, Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia to be relocated!



This Monday, Khyber Centre for the Arts’ artistic director Dan Joyce got a notification from HRM Events & Cultural Initiatives manager Elizabeth Taylor to leave and have no further programming at the Khyber Building on 1588 Barrington Street. The reasoning being that construction on a Starfish Properties building next door was potentially disrupting asbestos in the walls of the old building (it just celebrated its 125th birthday last year) and proved a potential toxic health hazard.

Shows—like this weekend’s Upstream Music Open Waters Festival—were quickly rescheduled to different locations, and upcoming exhibits will be relocated to a new, yet-to-be-determined venue.
