May 21, 2019 Engagement Session This year marks the fifth anniversary of the Living a Creative Life arts development strategy, which worked to align and activate Calgarians towards creating a vital, prosperous and connected city through the arts. Much has changed in five years and this anniversary provides a unique opportunity to evolve our arts strategy into a movement that further benefits all Calgarians and fosters a greater sense of belonging. And we would like your help. We have hired an independent consultant to engage a wide range of stakeholders and provide us with their honest feedback and perspectives. This will help us understand where we are today and what we need to do to create a focused strategy that is not only built on meaningful stakeholder input, but also resonates with Calgarians and the arts community. Join us for an engaging research workshop on Monday, June 3, 2019 from 5:30 to 8:30pm at Fort Calgary (750 9th Ave. SE). At this session we will be working in small groups and discussing provocative questions that explore the Living a Creative Life strategy and Calgary’s arts community from many angles. Food and refreshments will be provided. RSVP by registering for the event at eventbrite.ca. This is an important project for Calgary Arts Development as we evolve what it means to live and nourish a creative life for all Calgarians. We hope to see you there!
