The Project

The Northeast Mini Galleries program started in 2023 as part of the City of Calgary’s Northeast Public Art Initiative.

History

Calgary City Council noted a lack of public art in northeast Calgary compared to other quadrants, passing a motion on October 13, 2020 to specifically identify and support public art projects in the northeast.

The Northeast Public Art Initiative brings several public art projects to Calgary’s northeast communities, supports local artists, enhances northeast neighbourhoods and reflects the people who live in the communities where the art will be located.

This initiative aims to build amazing spaces for people to come together and provides opportunities for local artists to showcase their talent while celebrating the diversity of artforms, people and cultures represented in northeast Calgary.

The Northeast Mini Galleries

As a part of this initiative, the Northeast Mini Galleries launched in 2023 and showcased 39 local artists, selected by local art curators. Each mini gallery exhibition runs for a four-month period. Calgary Arts Development is working with The City of Calgary to transition this successful public art program into our work. 

The Northeast Mini Galleries Public Art Program is comprised of 13 mini galleries, including 10 located at different community associations, and three located downtown inside the Calgary Municipal Building’s atrium.
