Learn & Engage

Arts Commons is passionate about the arts as a powerful tool for enriching learning and inspiring people of all ages to meaningfully engage with the world around them. Education at Arts Commons creates memorable educational opportunities through multi-disciplinary School Programs that support over 12,000 students, teachers, and education professionals each year by teaching core subjects through the arts. 

As well as our education programs, Arts Commons features community engagement series such as the TD Amplify Cabarets and ArtsXpeditions, Arts Commons provides meaningful arts experiences to learn and engage with both in our building, in communities all over our city, and through our Community Giving programs. Within our building, we are also proud to showcase highly talented Visual and Media Artists within the gallery spaces housed within our building. 

In 2021, Arts Commons launched the inaugural season of the Arts Commons Incubator program, a professional development program designed for interdisciplinary Calgary artists traditionally underrepresented on mainstream stages. 

Join Arts Commons to learn and engage, and celebrate a love for the arts!
