Creative Calgary is a non-partisan group of artists, arts organizations and citizens at large who are committed to and advocate for a thriving arts sector with a positive public profile.

Creative CalgaryA big part of achieving this goal is having strong funding support from the municipal government. With the recent provincial cuts to municipalities, we need your help to advocate for the arts in Calgary’s upcoming municipal budget.

As an individual Arts Champion, please take out your phone, open up your email or Twitter (#creativeyyc), and send a message to your City Councillor (or all of them!) to share why you value the arts and to keep arts funding as a priority for the City.

For arts organizations, ask your audiences and stakeholders to do the same this month. Imagine the impact as the thousands of messages reach City Council. Need some tips as you share why arts funding is important to you and to keeping Calgary a socially vibrant and economically strong city?

It’s a small individual act, but together we’ll make a difference for the arts and for Calgary. Thank you for your support!
