Developing the Cultural Plan for Calgary
Calgary’s culture is as diverse as our population, finding expression across the city through art, food, fashion, dance, film, festivals, cultural celebrations, literary programs, walking and cycling events, community theatre, powwows and even pancake breakfasts.
In order for The City of Calgary to fully understand the scope of our current cultural resources and plan for future needs and opportunities, we are developing a Cultural Plan for Calgary. This plan will allow Calgarians to understand what we already have in the way of cultural resources, help identify the gaps and plan for what we need to do in the future. The Cultural Plan will allow us to demonstrate what a culturally rich city Calgary is, which strengthens our economy and improves the quality of life for all Calgarians. Please visit www.calgary.ca/culturalplan for full details.
