Add your voice in support of Calgary’s creative future
We have a considerable opportunity to enhance Calgary’s future through sustainable arts funding in the upcoming municipal election. At present, Calgary’s municipal support for arts organizations is the lowest among comparable cities in Canada.
Creative Calgary is a non-partisan group of citizens that care deeply about the role the arts play in connecting our communities and building a healthy, thriving city. Calgary’s artists are world-class and we aspire to be a creative hub, accessible to people of every age, ability and background. The arts and cultural sector currently employs more than 50,000 Calgarians and is a critical component of the economic diversification of the city, yet we could be contributing even more. Unfortunately, the sector is under threat due to persistent underfunding from the municipal government, presenting a substantial risk to our city’s educational, financial and community vitality.
