NE Public Art

In November 2020 City Council directed us to explore public art opportunities in Ward 5 and surrounding northeast Calgary communities with an emphasis on replacing the gap left by the Wishing Well at the Genesis Centre and further compensating for a historically inequitable distribution of public art funds in these communities.

This project will provide more opportunities for artists that live and work in the northeast.

It will support the local economy and provide opportunities for the community to come together and create amazing spaces.

As a starting point, we need to understand the values and priorities of residents, businesses and community organizations when it comes to public art. Your input will play a key role in helping make decisions on what kind of public art should be created, where it should be located and what stories the public art should tell.

Provide Your Input

In this phase of engagement, we want to understand:

  • What you value about public art in northeast Calgary.
  • What criteria you believe is important for public art in northeast communities.

We invite you to take a moment and share your ideas with us by answering the questions and/or registering for a workshop (see Workshops).

Engagement will be open March 23 to April 19, 2021.
