Public Art 101

UPDATED: February 21, 2024

Due to high interest in our upcoming Public Art 101 session, this workshop has been rescheduled to February 28, 2024 at a larger venue. There is now a waitlist for this event, but a recording will be made available on our website. Details for future sessions will be updated shortly.

Public Art 101 is a series of professional development workshops designed for artists and members of community groups and commissioning bodies who would like to learn what it takes to create  a successful public art project. These in-person workshops will be led by Dawn Van de Schoot, an experienced public art project lead with Calgary Arts Development.

Workshop topics are based on requests from the community and are intended to demystify the public art process in all phases of development — applications, budgets, community engagement, fabrication and more. Sessions are free and open to all who are interested in attending. Each session will have a formal presentation, time for Q&A and an informal networking period afterwards.

Presentations will be recorded and made available online soon afterward — registration is not required to access the video.
