May 15, 2018 Asian Heritage Foundation Connecting Asian Canadian Communities with Calgary’s Arts & Creative Sectors Do you identify as an artist, community collaborator, community leader, or an interested community member-at-large? Are you interested in learning about the unique opportunities to work collaboratively with cultural community artists and the broader arts community in Calgary? The Asian Heritage Foundation, supported by Calgary Arts Development, invites you to an educational session to discuss and share ideas about our current state of cross-cultural collaboration and opportunity-building between cultural community artists and performers, arts organizations/groups, organizers, and leaders of communities with members and representatives of the broad-based Calgary arts and creative sectors. The program includes presentations from various speakers working within the arts and creative communities about their initiatives for encouraging diversity and equity into their work. The second half of the program engages the audience through interactive sessions on collaborative opportunities available through cultural communities in Calgary. The artists and individual community members will share their experiences and exchange ideas with the audience. Join us to learn, engage, and make new connections in the arts sector. When: Sunday, May 27, 2018, 12:00 – 4:30pm Where: cSPACE King Edward (1721 29th Ave. SW) RSVP through eventbrite.ca.

About Asian Heritage Month In May 2002, the Government of Canada signed an official declaration to designate May as Asian Heritage Month. Celebrations across Canada acknowledge the long and rich history of Asian Canadians and their contributions to Canada. Asian Heritage Month events also provide an opportunity for Canadians across the country to reflect on and celebrate the contributions of Asian Canadians to the growth and prosperity of Canada.
