The E. A. Rawlinson Centre for the Arts is named for the late Mr E. A. ("Ed") Rawlinson, pioneer Canadian broadcaster, Prince Albert community leader and Founder of Rawlco Radio Ltd. A gift of over one million dollars from Rawlco Radio Ltd was significant in making the dream of a visual and performing arts centre for Central and Northern Saskatchewan a reality.
The Diefenbaker Theatre, a 600+ seat auditorium with all the latest amenities, is the answer to the performing arts portion of the Arts Board's mission. It has been embraced by the community, housing over 250 events each year. The Rawlinson Centre presents professional shows whose proceeds are used to subsidize local non-profit groups. This provides affordable access to the community, allowing non-profit groups to provide audiences with top-notch local entertainment. It is also often rented for other events, including graduations, art shows, and conventions.
