Board of Director Positions Open

Create Kids Fest is recruiting board volunteers responsible for the governance of the organization, planning and executing activities throughout the year, strategic planning, financial oversight and policy development.

About Create Kids Fest

Create Kids Fest hosted its inaugural festival in 2019, presenting over 20 artists and art organizations, across 2 venues to the Calgary Community. Family friendly, fuss-friendly, accessible and multi-generational, the initial success of the festival sparked the creation of a non-profit society governed by a volunteer Board to expand our reach into the Calgary community and beyond.

Create Kids Fest produces events big and small throughout the year featuring music, dance, storytelling, and theatre. These events are geared towards engaging young children and their families in multidisciplinary and interactive art experiences facilitated by Calgary professional artists.

As an organization we have remained nimble and responsive, adapting readily to the needs and interests of our community. Working quickly is an asset. We are always looking to pair with new venues, artists, funding opportunities and love new ideas. A natural curiosity and creativity is welcomed!

Create Values:

  • To create, develop and implement arts festivals for kids and families in Calgary.
  • To ensure that the festivals and programs put on by Create allow children to experience the arts in a comfortable environment.
  • Strive to provide art experiences that are accessible for all children in Calgary.
  • To provide educational experiences for younger generations to learn about event production and art creation to develop a life-long appreciation of the arts.
  • Develop opportunities for intergenerational community building, cultural awareness and emotional intelligence through art experiences.
