The Humber Cultural Hub will be home to Humber’s award-winning music, creative arts and multimedia programs and will allow the potential of Humber’s students to be realized.
Programming in the creative arts has long been an area of strength and program growth for Humber. The largest selection of Media Arts programs in the country are offered at Humber, as well as Canada’s first and most in-demand jazz program, the first comedy writing diploma program in North America, and Canada’s leading creative writing graduate certificate. Humber’s music program has consistently produced many of the most successful commercial and jazz musicians in Canada and the world. Humber’s capacity to expand programs and enrolment to support Canada’s thriving TV, film and animation industry and meet the burgeoning demand for skilled talent will be enabled through the Cultural Hub.
The Humber Cultural Hub will create new opportunities for Humber to improve program quality by incorporating purpose-built facilities and technologies to support excellence in education, hiring more award-winning faculty and expanding our focus on performance-based, student-centred learning.
Creating state-of-the-art performance and production spaces and outfitting them with professional-quality equipment will elevate the quality and range of academic programming and creative content development at Humber.
The Cultural Hub will serve as the backdrop to nurture and showcase Humber’s talented students in Music, Film and Media Production, Gaming, AR/VR/XR, Theatre, eSports and User Experience, as well as supporting broader programming within Humber College and the community.
Leveraging the Cultural Hub’s advanced technologies and systems, Humber will be able to further expand creative programming and services to remote, underserved communities in Canada and abroad through digital platforms and collaborative networks.
