Cornerstone Program

Applications currently closed

The Cornerstone Program provides stable investment in arts organizations that play an integral role in sustaining Calgary’s overall arts ecosystem. Because of their size and scale, contribution to their discipline and history of ongoing engagement with Calgarians, these organizations are civic institutions enriching the artistic and creative vibrancy of Calgary. Calgary Arts Development developed the Cornerstone Program to complement the redesigned Operating Grant Program.

Program Goal

Along with our Operating Grant Program, the goal of the Cornerstone Program is to ensure that Calgary arts organizations have the opportunity to excel and strategically achieve their mandates with a stable base of resources.
