About Maud Collective

We make aesthetic-driven activations and experiences that are artist-led. Initially founded in 2016 as Buds Collective, the collective was founded to save the old Buds Office Furniture Store located in Calgary. The initial collective was a group of makers and creatives who wanted to activate the historic building and secure finances to develop the site as a creative space for makers, artists, urbanists and designers. In 2020, Buds Collective rebranded as the MAUD Collective to better define the organization as a company dedicated to creative culture, experiences and placemaking. MAUD fosters a creative community through its commitment to supporting, compensating, and providing development opportunities to local artists while engaging them in local experiences with technology and place.

Our Principles for Great Activation

  • Engage people (process-based design thinking, co-authorship, inclusion, diversity, community-led, participatory creation, research).
  • Craft meaningful experiences (art, animation, music, environment design, aesthetic development).
  • Utilize innovative technologies (AR, social media, gamification, festival app & multimedia communications).
  • Frame place (placemaking, activations, pop-ups, gorilla interventions, installations, identity creation, wayfinding).

Our Vision Is To: Deliver our clients successful aesthetic-driven activations that will engage with their communities in meaningful and memorable ways.

Our Mission Is To: Support creative culture and engage a wide audience in meaningful place-based cultural activations by using innovative tools and processes.
