You're Invited: Arts Spaces Networking Night

Based on the success of their first event last September, Calgary Arts Development and The City of Calgary invite artists, arts organizations and facility operators to the second Arts Spaces Networking Night on Monday, April 13, 2015. This event is designed to connect community groups and other facility operators with artists and arts organizations looking for space.

Artists and arts organizations are invited to connect with facility operators to find rehearsal, presentation, studio and gallery spaces, and share how their activities can help enrich the surrounding community.

Community associations and other non-profit facility operators (including arts organizations) are invited to present information about their facilities such as location, amenities, and proximity to transit and parking to artists and arts organizations who can add value to your community.

Martha Cohen

Like many across the city, we at Calgary Arts Development were saddened to hear of the passing of philanthropist and visionary Martha Cohen on February 26, 2015. Dr. Cohen's contributions to Calgary were many, including raising funds to build the Calgary Centre for the Performing Arts (now Arts Commons) and supporting charities through the The Harry and Martha Cohen Foundation.

"It is no exaggeration to say that Martha Cohen has transformed our city, and particularly its arts and cultural scene," says Patti Pon, President & CEO of Calgary Arts Development. "She was a true champion for our city, and we extend our condolences to her friends and family."
