When students come to study at the new Centre for Arts and Culture, they will be using more than just paints and pianos to create their masterpieces. Technology has become an important part of the creative process in a number of ways, so the new CFAC will be outfitted with tools to assist students in bringing their visions to life.

This past week, crews continued work on a computer commons area on the fourth floor of the building. This is an open space with free-use computers for students to work on at any time during operating hours. Unlike a computer lab, the computers are not limited to class time, and the space doesn’t have to be pre-booked. This gives students access to some of the creative software they may need to complete assignments.

Not far from the computer commons, crews also worked on the equipment distribution centre, where students will borrow equipment for photography and videography projects. Access to this type of equipment is crucial because it helps students to create professional quality work and learn about the tools they will likely use in their careers.

Last week, floor grinding continued in the atrium, as did tile installation in the washrooms.
