The Government of Alberta is exploring ways to enhance the status of Alberta’s artists and arts organizations. The government is gathering feedback from the arts community and welcomes your thoughts on this initiative.

Status of the Artist

Status of the Artist initiatives, which can include legislation, consistently have two main components:

  • Recognizing and raising awareness of the value of artists in Alberta;
  • Enhancing the economic and working conditions of artists in Alberta.
