ATB Powering Possibility Through the Arts Award

The ATB Powering Possibility Through the Arts Award recognizes and supports small to mid-sized organizations who are committed to enriching Calgary through arts programming that powers possibilities for the local creative community.

This is a $5,000 cash award, with funds intended to allow a presenting body the ability to continue its work and expand its impact in the arts and culture community. The award will be presented to the recipient at an event celebrating the arts in 2023.

This award was established by ATB Financial and is a legacy project of Calgary 2012, Calgary’s year as a Cultural Capital of Canada.
