The Alberta Culture Days 2020 grant application is available!

Application deadline is July 16, 2020

We are happy to announce that Alberta Culture Days is extending its celebration for the entire month of September!

Please join us in celebrating Alberta’s arts and culture during Alberta Culture Days 2020, September 1 – 30.

Although our world has changed drastically over the last few months, we look forward to brighter days ahead and are being optimistic about what the fall bring.  We would like to thank all the organizations who have supported Alberta Culture Days in the past and present.

Are there Indigenous artists and performers that you want to showcase? Are you a multicultural organization who wants to highlight arts and culture? Do you want to profile artists from LGBTQ2S+ communities? As the current public health this situation continues to evolve, we look forward to working with artists, performers and partners to develop new and meaningful ways to connect in this unusual year. Alberta Culture Days is encouraging community organizations, especially those who may not have participated in previous Alberta Culture Days, to explore and transform how this celebration is shared with Albertans.

New this year is the opportunity for community organizations to host online events. While we still welcome applications for live events, public health advisories regarding in-person gatherings may change and evolve. Please be sure to include how your event could be transitioned to an online format should that be necessary. September is also the Month of the Artist and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate local artists than with Alberta Culture Days!

To find out more information and how to apply, please go to the Alberta Culture Days website for more information.  For additional information please go to the Tools and Tips.

The benefits of hosting an event include:

•           Creating opportunities for artists and performers from diverse backgrounds to exhibit, demonstrate and perform their art.

•           Bringing the community together to celebrate local diversity and culture.

•           Working with other cultural organizations to build relationships that benefit future collaborations.

•           Connecting with your community through online events, if health measures prevent in person events.
