Calgary Arts Development strives to increase and use its resources wisely, foster collaborative relationships, promote diversity and integrate arts into the lives of Calgarians. Calgary Arts Development recently received a transformational increase in arts funding to support Calgary in becoming a more innovative city promoting an exceptional quality of life, a diversified economy, and shared prosperity.
