The Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, is a cultural landmark and resource for arts, education and business in the Greater Toronto Area. The previous website was built on a complicated CMS that required manual HTML and CSS to update content. Now with Agility CMS, the digital team got a user-friendly EX: editors don't need to rely on manual configuration and technical know-how to create content and run updates across channels.

Creating a Breezy Editor Experience for Living Arts Center Team

The Centre houses 225,000 square feet of performance venues, studio spaces and exhibition display areas. Since it opened its doors in 1997, more than five million people have visited the Living Arts Centre to enjoy performances, showcases, conferences and a variety of other events.

The Living Arts Centre’s companion website also serves as an important resource as it provides facility booking information, event details, ticket purchasing and much more. In mid-2014, the Living Arts Centre’s marketing team began rebuilding its website on the Agility CMS Platform. The site launched in early 2015.

A Complicated Management System

The Living Arts Centre’s previous website was built and managed on a complicated content management platform that required manual HTML and CSS to update and publish content on the website.

When the brand set out to rebuild its website, the online team wanted to implement a user-friendly content management platform in order for its users to rely less on manual configuration and technical know-how to create content and update the website.

Another top priority of the LivingArtsCentre.ca overhaul was to design and build a website that could be optimally consumed across different devices – desktops, smartphones and tablets.

The new website also had to comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, legislation that mandates a set of guidelines to ensure websites are accessible and user-friendly for those with disabilities.
