Cards for Community

Cards for Community is a city-wide participatory project created to foster dialogue and community connection through storytelling-on-a-postcard. Residents, artists, poets, writers,songwriters, and young and old Calgarians are welcome to share personal neighbourhood stories. The hope is to make invisible parts of our city visible and to amplify stories from all over Calgary.

Project Challenge: To receive at least one postcard from every one of Calgary’s 212 neighbourhoods.

Cards for Community is more than postcards!

By participating: You will join hundreds of your neighbours to share your stories, art, poetry, craft, music, or recipe through a large scale physical and virtual art show at Loft 112 in Calgary’s East Village and the Central Library in February 2022.

21 postcards from 21 different neighbourhoods will be awarded $300 each and will be printed and available to pick up at library branches around the city.

One of those postcards could be yours!

Deadline to submit is December 2021.
