THE PUSH INTERNATIONAL Performing Arts Festival and three other local arts groups could be getting a new home. City staff are recommending PuSh, along with Touchstone Theatre, DOXA festival organizer the Documentary Media Society, and Music on Main as tenants in city-leased space in the CBC building on Hamilton Street. According to a report scheduled to go before council next week, the tenants will pay a “nominal rent” of $10 for the 8,500-square-foot space, which was secured by the city in 2006 to be used as a community cultural amenity. PuSh is being proposed as the lead subtenant, and will partner with Touchstone Theatre Society in the governance, operation, and management of the space. “For two years, PuSh and Touchstone Theatre Society have been working together to realize a co-location project including completion of several feasibility studies,” the staff report reads.
