Temporary Art Installation at Memorial Park

We recognize that these art installations will be placed on the ancestral territories of the First Nations of Treaty 7. This is the home of the Blackfoot Confederacy comprised of Blackfoot, Stoney Nakoda and Tsuut’ina Nations, as well as Métis Region 3, as communities who continue to protect and care for the land for generations to come.

With you with Pride (formerly Pride Marches On) is a temporary art installation, in partnership with Calgary Pride, The City of Calgary and Calgary Arts Development that commissions artists to create an art walk in Memorial Park in celebration of Calgary Pride.

For the fourth year in a row, we are seeking participation of four 2SLGBTQ+ or BIPOC artists or artist teams with public art experience to create temporary art mural installations (one mural per artist/artist team) at the four corner entrances to Memorial Park.

Rogers is proud to celebrate our community organizations doing impactful work to uplift the 2SLGBTQ+ community. To learn more about our journey to build a more inclusive culture, visit Rogers I&D.

Note: The City of Calgary has approved this concept and is in the process of formally approving the installation application. While we are eagerly awaiting approval, it looks very positive that we will get City approval in the next few weeks.
