Calgary Arts Development (CADA) has partnered with the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) and is now accepting flood impact assessment information from artists and arts organizations across the province.
CADA will be providing a preliminary assessment of the flood’s impact of Alberta’s arts sector to all orders of government and key partners by Friday, June 28, and requires your assistance in gathering this information. If you are an artist or an arts organization that has sustained damage or lost revenue due to the floods, please fill out this form by 3PM TODAY to be included in the preliminary report: http://calgaryartsdevelopment.com/flood-impact-assessment.
Please note that you can still fill out the form after today – CADA and AFA want to get the best information possible. The above deadline is only for the preliminary report.
If you or your organization face an immediate crisis or need for assistance, CADA will do its best to assist through its networks. If you face an immediate need please fill out this form: http://calgaryartsdevelopment.com/content/flood-assistance-immediate-needs.
If you have not been affected by the flood, please forward this message on to someone who has. Let’s work together to try to provide as much flood damage assessment information as possible!

Calgary Arts Development extends its sympathy to everyone who has been affected by the Alberta flooding. We are grateful to our inexhaustible city workers and all Calgarians who continue to help their neighbours throughout this crisis.
- Coordinator: we will gather information about the flood’s impact on Calgary’s artists and arts organizations, and can help facilitate connections between those needing help and those wanting to help. We will share the information we gather with other authorities as quickly as possible.
- Information source and guide: we are compiling specific information that may help an impacted artist or arts organization understand the steps they should take, and will assist artists and arts organizations in accessing supports as they become available. We will create lists of artists and arts organizations who are willing to offer their talents to serve general community relief efforts.
- Relief provision: we are looking at our own available resources that we may be able to redirect to assist organizations and artists that are facing crisis. We will work with our partners to identify and direct resources appropriately. As of June 24, we do not know if any extraordinary funding or resources will be available.
