We get a lot of requests for information on funding for community driven arts projects such as murals or public art. We have compiled a two-page resource sheet with some suggestions. We're open to adding other information so please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. Thanks!
Calgary Arts Development intends its Operating Grant Process to be fair and transparent. In the event where a case can be made that an assessment panel has misunderstood an application or where due process was not followed, Calgary Arts Development offers an opportunity for applications to be re-considered through an appeals process.
We're proud to present our annual report in electronic format this year. Many festivals and arts organizations in Calgary are known for their progressive environmental practices and consciousness-raising artwork. Calgary Arts Development is trying to play a part in that, and minimizing our paper usage through digital communication and online systems is one clear way to make an impact.PDF.
Calgary Arts Development announced, in July 2007, an important step towards strengthening resources for the arts in Calgary: the start of a process to renew and strengthen our granting programs. Through renewal we hope to support and encourage the tremendous growth of Calgary's arts sector by building the best municipal granting system in the country.
Building a strong program for the future will require us to take a series of actions in the short-term to ensure an appropriate amount of time to consult the community, develop new systems, align our resources and ultimately implement any new programs that result. Changes to the operating grants program are not something we take lightly, and our goal is to ensure minimal disruption for Calgary's arts organizations.
The attached booklet describes in detail how we will be moving forward with the renewal process. As always, we invite you to contact us directly to express any thoughts, questions or comments that you have. For questions directly related to the renewal process and your grant, please contact Karen Ball, Director of Community Investment, or Holly Simon, Community Investment Officer, at 264-5330 or email@example.com.
