Supporting organizations in Calgary and Western Canada in the performing and visual arts, museums, research and social services.
Funds will be used to help improve operational efficiencies of arts-based organizations so that they can increase their market share, support marginalized populations to access arts and cultural experiences as well as develop unique experiences around Canada's music industry. Working with local umbrella arts organizations, funding decisions are made to meet the areas of greatest need within that community.
Social services funding supports organizations addressing Domestic Violence, Social Justice, and Women's Rights.
Research funding is being directed towards Post-Secondary institutions around Physical Literacy and Physical Wellness.
Museum funding is project specific and varies from general operations to programming.
