Founded in January 2019 with the purpose of connecting newcomer artists and creative professionals to the existing arts community in Calgary. We strive to provide resources and information that would help newcomer artists turn their passion and creativity into thriving careers or businesses. ICAI actively encourages diversity of expression and culture through the creation of a safe and welcoming community hub where newcomer artists feel free to express their distinct cultural identities through their arts. We provide specialized information and resources for newcomer artists, create free, inclusive, and tailored networking events for newcomer artist practice, and provide support for arts administrators and artistic growth through career and business development strategies and mentorship.
