Regina Exhibition Associated Limited is reaching out to the public.
The organization held an open houses Friday at the Mamaweyatitan Centre, being held to collected residents thoughts on the future of EVRAZ Place for their next long-term strategic plan.
“That is our reason for being at EVRAZ Place,” said REAL’s Marketing and Communications Director Paula Kohl. “It’s to offer programs and a facility that makes our community stronger.”
The open houses not only provided an opportunity for residents to offer feedback, but also learn about the facility.
“Certain people have different reasons for coming to EVRAZ Place. Some might just come for a concert once in a while, others are there every day for recreational programming,” said Kohl. “It’s a chance for us to talk to people and help them understand what’s there today and what that future might look like.”
One of those people in attendance was Janet Benjoe, who spoke about wanting to have REAL/EVRAZ more involved in the community.
“Kind of getting to know who we are as people, as First Nations and Indigenous peoples,” she said. “I don’t know if anybody knows when they take their diversity cultures and that, they have to learn about our language.”
This was the second of five open houses held. There’s still three more to go, including one scheduled for Monday at the North West Leisure Centre starting at 6 pm. For more information on how you can attend an open house or offer your feedback, visit the EVRAZ Place website.
