How to Apply

We use an online platform called Smart Simple. If you already have an account with us, you can login right away to start or continue your application. We suggest you bookmark this page!

If you don’t already have an account with us, you will need to create an account and set up your user profile before you can apply. Artist collectives must create a collective account that is separate from their individual account, then apply through their collective account. Please note: you cannot use the same email address for both your individual and collective account; you must use a unique email address for each.

Please contact or for help with any questions or technical issues.

Calgary Arts Development is committed to open, fair and transparent processes. We will work one-on-one with potential applicants who experience barriers to develop accommodations that suit their abilities and situations. Please see our Application Assistance Policy and Accommodation & Accessibility Policy for more information.​
