Need help applying?

Calgary Arts Development is committed to open, fair and transparent processes. There are two policies available for anyone who may need support to apply to this program: the Accommodation & Accessibility Policy and the Application Assistance Policy.

We will work one-on-one with applicants who experience barriers to access to develop accommodations that suit their unique abilities and situations, and continually seek to learn and address inequities in our programs and processes.

If you have any questions or need any help completing an application, please contact the public art team at
