Nada Ristich Studio-Gallery

With the support of over two hundred donors, the Nada Ristich Tribute Committee led by Salah Bachir and Nancy Lockhart raised over $1 million to support the new Nada Ristich Studio-Gallery at Streetcar Crowsnest. We are tremendously grateful for this outpouring of generosity, which is a true testament to Nada’s legacy of leadership in Canadian arts philanthropy.

For more than twenty-five years, Nada Ristich has been helping to build thriving and diverse arts communities across the country in her role as Head, Community Giving at BMO. Crow’s Theatre is proud to be celebrating Nada by putting her name up in lights and continuing this work through our programming.

The Nada Ristich Studio-Gallery will be home to rehearsals, performances, readings, community events, and the creation of new works. Renovations to the property at 1210 Dundas Street East have begun, and we so look forward to welcoming patrons to this fabulous new space to showcase the impact of this support.
