Weyburn Arts Council
Weyburn has long been a cultural centre for its region. W.O. Mitchell is one of several authors, artists and performers to begin careers in Weyburn and go on to national and international recognition. Opportunity to develop and express cultural interest is centered at the five-storey Signal Hill Arts Centre, with its Signal Hill Gallery and extensive production facilities for pottery, photography, painting and other arts. In addition, the recently renovated public library feature the Allie Griffin Art Gallery, and the City supports the Soo Line Historical Museum, Heritage Village and the remarkable Turner Curling Museum. The T.C. Douglas Centre for Performing Arts is a living memorial to a Weyburn politician who became one of the country's most recognized leaders. "Crocus 80 Theatre" adds local productions to the many touring performances that visit the City each year.
As a City born in immigration and fueled by resource exports and trade, Weyburn maintains an international network of business contacts in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. We celebrate the strength of our multiculturalism -- appreciating the diverse roots of our past and opening our arms to newcomers from other nationalities today.
