Working with Calgary's artistic and creative communities. Calgary Arts Development is a central hub that learns about, promotes, connects, advocates for, and leads strategic initiatives in the arts to animate Calgary as a vibrant cultural centre. They allocate municipal funding for the arts provided by The City of Calgary through granting programs that support operations and innovation for more than 190 arts organizations in Calgary. They support many of the city's cultural organizations - from grassroots theatres to blockbuster performances. They ensure that Calgary's artists have the opportunity to develop their art and bring it forward to audiences. The organization's website features volunteer opportunities, performance listings, and profiles of Calgary artists to get an in-depth look into what it means to live a creative life in our city.
