About this event

CreativeCITY has proposed four strategic pillars to guide the growth of Calgary’s creative economy. We need to know if these pillars speak to creatives and creative enterprises across Calgary. Voice your take during one of our workshops.

Our Four Strategic Pillars

Embed audacious creativity into our city’s DNA: To fully leverage the robust, growing creative economy in Calgary, creativity needs to be at the heart of everything we do as a city.

Incubate creative collisions: Unifying our creative economy under one identity requires creating conditions for collaboration, cross-sector partnerships, knowledge transfer, and resource sharing.

Mobilize Calgary’s creative capacity: To develop and retain Calgary’s exceptional creative talent, we must work to ensure creative professionals, new or seasoned, have the knowledge, skills, and resources required to succeed.

Value the diversity of Calgary’s creativity: Calgary has an opportunity to tap into the unique perspectives and experiences of our diverse creative class to build something new, authentic, and meaningful for everyone in the city.

What is CreativeCITY?

Since fall 2020, a collaboration of not-for-profit, for-profit, and public-sector organizations and individuals (a.k.a. CreativeCITY) has engaged experts and leaders across diverse areas of Calgary’s creative economy. With sustained support from Calgary Arts Development (CADA), we seek a unifying identity for Calgary’s creative ecosystem. We published the pretty fantastic CreativeCITY: Prosperity through the Creative Economy Ecosystem Report. Together, we identified four strategic pillars on which to build Calgary’s creative economy.
