Arts Commons is a privately funded not-for-profit organization and federally registered charity that is transforming community through the power of art.

As one of three major performing art centres in Canada and the heart of Calgary’s downtown cultural district, Arts Commons is committed to Calgary’s success as a dynamic community, rich in connectedness, creativity, curiosity, and self-expression.

We are dedicated to creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and where people of all ages and backgrounds are able to watch and participate in dynamic performances and programs. It is our goal that every Calgarian has the opportunity to experience and participate in the arts. Your support is essential to our achieving this goal.

You can make a real difference right here in your own community by helping us sustain, enrich, and grow our artistic programming and arts education curriculum by making a tax-deductible gift through Founders Circle.

Your generosity can introduce a child to the wondrous world of the arts, foster and promote the aspirations of a new generation of artists, or inspire people to care about the astonishing diversity of life on our precious planet.

Arts Commons follows the Association of Fundraising Professionals Ethical Guidelines.
