Board of Directors

The GRAND is a non-profit organization committed to supporting our local arts community and our mandate to be Calgary’s contemporary culture house.

In addition to its theatre productions and support of the arts, The GRAND is also well positioned for rentals, hosting and curating events such as corporate functions, corporate parties, fund raisers, weddings, music, comedy, fashion shows, and similar events related to the community.

Through challenging economic times and the COVID-19 pandemic, the board of The GRAND has been working diligently on preparing a sustainable path forward for The GRAND to ensure we are a sustainable foundation for curating the arts in Calgary. We are currently recruiting three new volunteer board members to join our dedicated group of individuals who are committed to supporting the arts community in Calgary.
