Community Engagement

X Marks the Spot for Pop-up Arts Encounters 

ArtsXpeditions is back and bigger than ever! Coming soon to a neighbourhood near you, ArtsXpeditions pop-up performances bring music, dance, and performance art to community centres, parks, and even the occasional street corner. This year, there will be twice as many performances scattered across the city, connecting Calgarians with all of the amazing talent that our community has to offer – outside in the beautiful summer weather.

Join us for our first ArtsXpeditions performance to kick-off a summer of parks, picnics, and performances!
