Despite the -20C temperature on January 8 every venue was packed when Music Mile had its official launch. Artists such as Bob Macfarlane, Kris Demeanor, Northwest Passage, Anne Taylor, The Wardens, Brent Tyler, Joe Semple Quartet, Steve Pineo, the Heebee Jeebees, and Sonny Rhodes performed in a variety of venues officially kicking off this newly named entertainment district in our city.

Calgarian Engagement Survey Results

Calgarian Engagement Survey Results

With the growth of our population, the changing face of Calgary, and the proliferation of new technologies and media, Calgary Arts Development wanted to gain a thorough understanding of arts engagement in our city.

More than 1,000 Calgarians participated in an online survey about their media habits, attendance at arts events, attitudes towards the arts, and participation in creating art.
