OUR VISION The Evergreen Cultural Centre is a centre for excellence in diverse artistic endeavours, locally treasured, and widely respected. OUR MISSION To be known as the choice cultural destination by providing the community with engaging, quality entertainment, exhibitions, and arts programs in a welcoming environment. ABOUT US The Evergreen Cultural Centre, a registered charitable organization and not-for-profit society, opened its doors in October 1996 in the new Town Centre in Coquitlam, British Columbia. A shared vision of the City of Coquitlam, the Tri-City arts community, private business and senior government, it is a facility and organization committed to providing excellence in arts and culture. Evergreen is operated by the Evergreen Cultural Centre Society and governed by a Board of Directors. It is funded by the City of Coquitlam, as well as federal, provincial and foundation sources, box office revenue and corporate sponsorships. The centre houses a 257-seat, flexible black box theatre and a 1500 square foot public art gallery. The Rehearsal Studio and several art or meeting studios provide an additional 5000 square feet of space for Evergreen’s classes, workshops and rentals while the spacious glassed-in Lobby offers a spectacular view of Lafarge Lake. The Evergreen Cultural Centre presents a variety of arts programs including professional theatre, dance and music presentations, art exhibitions, arts education programs, and public programs for both children and adults, including arts camps. For young audiences it also produces its own family series and spring break festival. In addition, the centre is a venue for numerous community-based arts groups providing much needed rehearsal, performance and teaching space. In 2014, over 80,000 visitors came to the Evergreen Cultural Centre to participate in the many offerings throughout the year.
