Advocating for a Thriving Arts Sector

Creative Calgary is a group of non-partisan arts advocates.


We convene and mobilize Calgary’s arts sector to advocate for strong civic funding and for integration of the arts in city-building initiatives.

We invite artists and arts supporters throughout Calgary to add their voices:

Advocacy Group Meetings

Creative Calgary invites civic partners to connect with the arts community at Advocacy Group meetings.

In 2018-19, the following organizations used this forum to consult with our arts sector:

  • CADA

  • Tourism Calgary

  • City of Calgary, Arts and Culture

Ward Story Collection

Creative Calgary invites artists and arts organizations to submit their impact stories.


This collection of ward stories is a clear demonstration of how the arts fulfill a mandate of supporting Calgarians in living a creative life.  




Nothing showcases a thriving arts community like a rally of passionate advocates!

When Creative Calgary invites its supporters to public advocacy events, please share with your networks and raise your voice at the event!
