A Cultural Mixer: Supporting Refugee Services

Working with UNB Fredericton’s MBA Professional Development Class to enhance their experience
with social entrepreneurship while assisting the newest members of the Fredericton community.

FREDERICTON: Together with the UNB MBA Professional Development Class, The Cultural Centre will host a fundraising mixer on April 1, 2016 at 6 pm to help the Centre provide additional space for refugees and other community groups.

With the recent influx of refugees, a growing number of organizations are looking for space in the Centre to provide refugee services. This event will serve to increase awareness of the different associations and organizations housed within the Cultural Centre, including those that are providing refugee services.

The fundraiser will showcase entertainment and food from various cultures, as well as a silent auction to raise funds for this important cause.

“This event will allow the community to not only support a great cause, but also showcase various forms of unique entertainment from different cultures” says Dan Taylor, President and CEO of The Cultural Centre.

Tickets are $30 for an individual or $50 for two, and can be purchased at the Cultural Centre, YMCA or Read’s on King Street.

About The Cultural Centre: The Cultural Centre (the Centre) is the epicentre for the Greater Fredericton's cultural community and non-profit groups. Located in the heart of Fredericton, the Centre offers flexible office, meeting and event space for cultural groups, non-profits and the businesses that support them.

Home to the Multicultural Association of Fredericton (MCAF), the Asian Heritage Society and the Iranian Association of New Brunswick, to name just a few, the Centre is a cost-effective resource for groups and organizations seeking both long-term and/or short-term space. Regardless of what you are looking for: one-room offices, multi-room offices, classroom space, event space for training, dinners or receptions, we can work with you.

Fredericton’s Cultural Centre Launches New Name, Logo

Fredericton, May 7, 2015 - The former Fredericton Intercultural Centre is pleased to announce it is rebranding as THE CULTURE CENTRE.

"This is an exciting new phase for our organization," says Dan Taylor, president and CEO of The Cultural Centre. “This is a name and a look that better reflects our place in the community, and our commitment to giving cultural organizations and non-profits in Fredericton a place to work in.”

In 2013, The Cultural Centre took ownership of the building located at 28 Saunders Street (former YMCA building), with the goal of establishing a centre for ethno-cultural and settlement organizations in the Fredericton area. With the Multicultural Association of Fredericton as a primary tenant, The Cultural Centre has expanded to provide office, storage and work space for over 15 diverse tenants, including Asian Heritage Society of New Brunswick, , Iranian Canadian Association of New Brunswick, Fredericton Makerspace, Ambulance New Brunswick, Chinese Cultural Association of New Brunswick, and Filipino Community Of New Brunswick.

“We want to move away from being known as ‘the old Y,’” says Taylor. “We are a new and dynamic organization with a lot of big plans for the future. This gives us a fresh start and new energy towards our future projects.”

“The Centre is a central place for Multicultural community where they can have office, meet and greet with other new comers and make new friends. Ethno- Cultural Community had needed a place like this since long, to hold meetings, organize their cultural and social activities and invite locale to participate and learn their Rich culture and art.” Says Madhu Verma, Chairperson of Asian Heritage Society of New Brunswick and the one of the originator of the idea of The Cultural Centre, in 1970s.”

Taylor says The Centre hopes to continue to grow by reclaiming further unused space in the building. More details, including fundraising initiatives, are expected to be announced this fall.
