A Study of the Banff School of Fine Arts and the Banff Centre for Continuing Education.
Kidd, J. R.
The objectives of this study were: (1) to study the present goals and operations of the Banff school in Canada and to approach its unique contributions to the life of the nation, (2) to assess the role the school might play in the future, and (3) to determine the most effective arrangement for governing and support of the school. Most of this report deals with suggestions for change and improvement in the future. The study was conducted over a five-week period. Data was obtained in the following ways: (1) interviews and correspondence with individuals having some association with the school, and (2) collection of relevant reports and other documents concerning the school. Conclusions are: (1) The Banff school contributes greatly to Canada, Canadians, and all who attend the Center because it helps them attend to their deepest needs; (2) Some changes are needed in administrative arrangements to offset the impersonality that has crept into the center, e.g., alterations in the conference rooms, additions to the learning materials, and the recruiting of conference counselors.
