Events (Calgary): Calgary Arts Development Community Circle

 

Calgary Arts Development

Oki! Calgary Arts Development has been guided by an Indigenous Advisory on the development of an Original Peoples Investment Program*, a grant program designed by and for First Nations, Métis, Inuit (FNMI) artists, collectives, arts administrators and support workers, and FNMI-led arts organizations.

We would like to welcome any FNMI individuals or groups who might be interested in applying to the program in the future to attend our second Community Circle where we will go through the draft guidelines and collect feedback that will inform the way the program runs.

Saturday, November 17, 2018
Pathways Indigenous Youth Hub (223 12th Avenue. SW)

Start Time: 2:00pm
Review Guidelines, Interactive Activities, and Collecting Feedback: 2:00 – 4:30pm

Pathways Indigenous Youth Hub is located at the CommunityWise Resource Centre with its own outdoor entrance to the right of the main stairs.  Food and beverages will be provided.

If you would like to review the draft guidelines before the Community Circle you can download the most recent PDF here.

During the Community Circle we will be sharing with each other through interactive activities and group conversations in order for you to provide feedback.

Capacity is limited so please RSVP at eventbrite.ca.

This is your chance to:

  • Review the program’s guidelines prior to it launching.
  • Provide feedback on everything—the process, the criteria, the application, the assessment process, the language used, etc.
  • Share perspectives of other artists.

*Calgary Arts Development would like to give thanks for the generosity and wisdom of Elders Edmee Comstock, Dakota Eagle Woman, Lance Scout, and the tireless efforts of Suzanne McLeod and all those who participated as part of the Indigenous Artist Advisory, without whom this program would not be possible.

We would also like to thank Kathy Hsieh and her colleagues at the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture for the inspiration for the assessment process, and the entire Equity in the Panel working group and all funders working towards equity, diversity and inclusion in the arts.
