What started as a single course in drama has grown into an extraordinary legacy of excellence in arts education, culture, and creativity across all disciplines. From our home on sacred Treaty 7 land in the stunning Canadian Rocky Mountains, Banff Centre aims to inspire everyone who attends our campus – artists, leaders and thinkers – to unleash their full potential.
