The Rivers District Master Plan: What’s in it for YYC Arts & Culture?

What could the proposed Events Centre/Arena, in conjunction with the BMO expansion and Arts Commons upgrade, mean for Calgary’s artists, arts organizations and arts lovers? Councillor Jeff Davidson recently wrote in a Calgary Herald editorial, “On top of the economic benefits, investment, jobs and revenue it would create, the event centre is the focal point in developing a cultural gathering point for all Calgarians.” How can we ensure that the needs, visions and contributions of the city’s cultural sector are included in the Rivers District master plan? 

Please join us for an informal — and informed —  conversation, hosted by cultural connector Karen Ball and Wordfest’s CEO & Creative Ringleader Shelley Youngblut. We’ve invited representatives from City Council, CMLC, Arts Commons, Calgary Arts Development and the Calgary Stampede Foundation to participate, and hope that you will add your voices as well.
