I’m of to Calgary AB for a few days this week … wearing my ‘other art hat,’ as an advocate for visual artists here in Alberta and elsewhere.
I am heading south as part of a group of people involved with Visual Arts Alberta/CARFAC. We are going to be attending several events and meetings from Thursday through Saturday:
On Saturday April 6, I’ll be at two events.
In the morning, VAA/CARFAC is co-hosting an event with Calgary Arts Development: we will be with the Arts Plan Team
at the Museum of Contemporary Art Calgary, upper level (Suite 104, 800 Macleod Tr. SE) from 9:30am – 11:30am.
This session is geared towards those interested specifically in the Visual Arts, to learn more about Calgary’s Arts Plan and what it means for the city. If you’d like to attend, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
AND … later that day, you’ll find me at ACAD!
I will be presenting a Professional Development talk at 2 pm …
I am hoping to meet lots of Calgary-based artists – there’s not nearly as much communication between the artists in the province, and I for one fell like that has to change!
Off to finish packing and prepping!
