Office Expansion Project

Office Expansion

Our Office is Expanding

You may have noticed construction happening on the Salmon Arm Folk Music Society grounds. We are thrilled to share with you that our office is expanding and we are creating a new storage building. Expanding our office and building storage space will increase our organizational capacity, increase shared space with community organizations, and continue developing SAFMS as a community leader.  This pivotal project is a big step forward in our mission to promote and support live music in The Shuswap. 

These projects have been made possible through the support of our community sponsors, specific government infrastructure grants, and our partnership with the Okanagan College Salmon Arm Carpentry Foundation Program. 

The details: 

Office Expansion 

The office extension will include up to 4 new staff spaces to conveniently house marketing, summer staff, production contractors, a video edit suite, and a dedicated meeting room. 

Project Start: March 2024
Project Complete: Fall 2024


Storage Building 

The new storage building is intended to be a multiple-stakeholder shared space to store community event equipment at a single location. This approach will increase equipment sharing, and reduce duplicate equipment purchases, and the increased capacity will reflect in resources being directed from each stakeholder renting separate storage spaces.
