Do you have an interest in Calgary becoming the best possible place for all citizens? If so, then please join us at the 2016 Creative Calgary Congress.
This event is specifically for curious, creative, compassionate Calgarians who want to dig into some of the current ideas and creative challenges in our city today.
Calgary Arts Development is creating a space where speakers, activators, and forward thinking Calgarians come together to share ideas and explore new and renewed ways of working together.
Morning speakers and presentations will take place at the DJD Dance Centre (111 12th Ave. SE). At noon we will move one block west to Hotel Arts for a buffet lunch followed by two activation sessions in the afternoon.
