Stop by to discover what’s on, grab an Arts Scene brochure, or simply explore the building and gallery.

What’s in a Name?

Maurice “Maury” Young was an avid sailor, skier, and philanthropist who had a big impact on the Whistler community. The Young family believed in Whistler’s future from the early days of the area’s ski development, and Maury began serving as the chair of the Whistler Mountain Ski Corporation in 1988, a position he held for nine years.

To honour Maury when he passed in 1999 the Young family donated two million dollars to help make the building of the centre possible. They knew that Maury would be proud to have his name attached to a figurative and literal stage, for residents and visitors alike, to interact and share their passions and life experiences.
