Update: Alberta Arts Flood Rebuild

Alberta Arts Flood Rebuild has completed its second round of funding, disbursing a total of $198,500 to nine artists and eight arts organizations affected by the June 2013 Alberta floods. This round of funding follows an initial intake in fall 2013.

Residual funds will be used for two legacy projects: $25,000 contributed from The Calgary Foundation will be used to create an Arts Disaster Preparedness Plan. The plan will build from the Disaster Preparedness Plan for The City of Calgary created by Calgary Economic Development and the Calgary Chamber, will include Calgary contacts and information as well as best practices, and will be shared as broadly as possible across the province and the country.

The approximately $25,500 remaining in unrestricted contributions from community donors will be used to create a special fund at the Elephant Artist Relief Society (EAR) for the purpose of helping individual artists of all disciplines in crisis.

You're Invited: Arts Spaces Networking Night

Calgary Arts Development and The City of Calgary invite artists, arts organizations and facility operators to an Arts Spaces Networking Night on Monday, September 22, 2014. This event is designed to connect community groups and other facility operators with artists and arts organizations looking for space.

Artists and arts organizations are invited to connect with facility operators to find rehearsal, presentation, studio and gallery spaces, and share how their activities can help enrich the surrounding community.

Community associations and other non-profit facility operators (including arts organizations) are invited to present information about their facilities such as location, amenities, and proximity to transit and parking to artists and arts organizations who can add value to your community.
