An arts program that was forced to shut down after the roof of the Fairview Arena collapsed earlier this year is hosting a block party on Monday to welcome back artists and supporters.

The Indefinite Arts Centre was housed in a building attached to the arena, located in the 8000 block of Fairmount Drive S.E., and was closed after a section of the roof above the rink fell in on February 20.

The organization assists artists who have developmental disabilities and also offers classes and workshops to children and families.

The centre is the oldest and largest disability arts organization and officials say plans are in the works to create a multidisciplinary arts hub.

On Monday, a block party is being held at 11:30 a.m. to welcome back artists, supporters and area residents and organizers will also unveil plans for the new National accessArts Centre.

Officials say the National accessArts Centre will be similar in style to the Banff Centre and will be North America’s first multidisciplinary arts hub.
