Arts In Alberta

Albertans are celebrating life through the arts around the province as artists, arts lovers, arts educators, and arts supporters.

The AFA aims to connect Alberta’s diverse arts communities with the AFA Newswire, an e newsletter offering news submitted by arts stakeholders about arts opportunities and events throughout the province.

Alberta Culture Days is the annual celebration of our culture, heritage, artistic diversity and provincial pride. All communities, governments, organizations, schools, libraries, media outlets, cultural and recreation facilities, and individual Albertans are encouraged to join the celebration!

Want to create, learn or interact? Visit the Alberta Culture Calendar for your guide to cultural events in Alberta.

Interested in job opportunities? Calls for submissions? Available rehearsal stage? See our Arts Opportunities section for Alberta’s arts classifieds!
