Month of the Artist
Month of the Artist

From the Alberta Government:

September is the Month of the Artist in Alberta. Alberta is the first and remains the only province in Canada to dedicate a month to artists. It is an annual celebration of artists, and the value they bring to the province, both socially and economically.

Join us this September during the third annual Month of the Artist in Alberta to recognize and support local artists, many of whom have lost work because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Art is work. Artists’ work enriches our lives, promotes creativity and innovation, and contributes to a more diversified economy. When the arts thrive, Alberta is a better place to live, invest and do business.
