Calgary Arts Development President & CEO encourages everyone to live a creative life


Starting this week, in partnership with WeMaple, Calgary Arts Development will post a video story once per month as part of The Storytelling Project. Our first video story features Calgary Arts Development President & CEO Patti Pon.

“Living a Creative Life is an arts development strategy for Calgary, by Calgarians,” says Pon. “Our overarching vision is that Calgary is a place that empowers every resident to live a creative life, fueling a vital, prosperous and connected city. These videos will become part of our Storytelling Project, which features written, podcast, and video stories about Calgarians who are living creative lives.”
