All classifieds are listed in order of date submitted with older ones remaining on the site for transparency. We work to reclassify ads to the archive on a regular basis. If you need your ad updated or removed, please email us at
All classifieds must have an arts or culture component, be of relevance to Calgarians, and be industry focused. Public events and activities should be submitted to What’s On for possible inclusion.We reserve the right to deny ads that we deem to be offensive, misleading, exploitative or inaccurate.

Ads for jobs outside of Calgary and area may not be posted. Please share salary ranges or payment.

Calgary Arts Development edits all ads for style, grammar, and accuracy. Please contact if you have any concerns.
Follow these tips for a great classified:

  • Be as specific and clear as possible.
  • Use complete sentences rather than a series of phrases and random words. Don’t over capitalize words or use all caps. Make it easy to read.
  • Include all pertinent information including:
    • Who, what, when, where, why, and how.
    • Contact information including an email address.
    • Important dates and deadlines.
    • Information on payment, artists’ fees, exhibition royalties, salary ranges, and the like. Unsure what to pay an artist? Use the CARFAC minimum fee schedule as a guideline.
    • Website links. The form does not send rich text, so please include the full URLS.
  • An introduction or summary paragraph at the beginning of the ad helps draw people in plus helps scrapers and search engines share your classified with a broader audience.
  • Add a photo if at all possible. The best images are horizontal and will be cropped to 800 pixels by 600 pixels.
  • Include street addresses with location names. Make it easy for someone to find you.

As all ads are user submitted, please respond as directed in the classified.
Email with your changes and we’ll get it updated as soon as possible.
