It takes good leaders—good people—to do this sort of work and a lot of understanding of who you are as a leader, changemaker and disrupter who is trying to make this a better world.
A lot of Indigenous ceremonies and knowledge are about going inward, understanding who you are — your identity, your beliefs, your values, the principles that you live by.

About the Creative Calgary Congress
Calgary Arts Development produced the first Arts Champions Congress in 2011 as a meeting place for people who make Calgary’s arts sector a vibrant and exciting place to work and our city a great place to live.
Renamed the Creative Calgary Congress in 2014, it returned on November 22, 2016 as a place to share ideas and explore ways that the arts and artists can play a leadership role in making Calgary a more curious, compassionate and creative place for all citizens.
