Canada's biggest college is about to open what it calls a "world-class hub for the next generation of creative minds."
The Calgary Entertainment Arts Production Hub at Bow Valley College will offer courses in 3D animation, visual effects, game development, and post-production, among other things, reports the CBC.
It's a $5.5 million investment from the Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund, which says the hub will be "a catalyst for economic growth, supporting business development activities in the entertainment arts industry, and attracting more investment to Calgary in this exciting sector."
"By investing in talent development and boosting entrepreneurship, we can capture the economic growth and investment attraction these changes bring," says Brad Parry, CEO of Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund and president and CEO of Calgary Economic Development.
"This investment is a game changer for our students, faculty, and researchers who contribute their talent and skills to a thriving sector of our economy," says Dr.eck Mwaba, president and CEO of Bow Valley College.
