Banff Centre

BIRS is located on the campus of Banff Centre, a haven for the creative arts within a world-renowned nature reserve, the Banff National Park.

Banff Centre

Founded in 1933, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity is a learning organization built upon an extraordinary legacy of excellence in artistic and creative development. What started as a single course in drama has grown to become the global organization leading in arts, culture, and creativity across dozens of disciplines. From our home in the stunning Canadian Rocky Mountains, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity aims to inspire everyone who attends our campus – artists, leaders, and thinkers – to unleash their creative potential.

Beyond the meals that Banff Centre provides to BIRS guests at Vistas Dining room with panoramic windows, the Centre also boasts a swimming pool, a running track, a workout room, a climbing wall, and an arts/music library and world class performance theatre

As a centre gearing largely to the performing arts, BIRS guests are encouraged to visit their website to see what sorts of events are going on in the Banff Centre performance halls during their stay, at:
