After a bit of a hiatus Papergirl Calgary is set to start planning the 2017 project. Anyone interested in working together this year please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are doing things a little bit different this year – keeping it simple and making it all about collecting and delivering free art to Calgarians this summer. We also will volunteer for other organizations from time to time, whenever some extra community help is needed. So, if you have an hour a month to spare to help plan the project or if you just want to meet for coffee and talk community or ideas send that email!
Papergirl & Beakerhead have joined up to take you on a bike ride this Saturday so that you can see all of the amazing art installations around the city. Meet at Fort Calgary 10:00am at the Bike Valet. Lauren & Carrie will lead the ride which should be about 3 hours long, spending 15 minutes at each installation. The installations are out of the ordinary and you will get to photocopy yourself on a human sized photocopier so be sure to dress in your finest fun gear.
LIVING A CREATIVE LIFE is an arts development strategy for Calgary, by Calgarians. The strategy was produced through a rigorous consultation process facilitated by Calgary Arts Development and is a result of our year as a Cultural Capital of Canada in 2012.
CONNECTIONS TO LIVING A CREATIVE LIFE
Papergirl Calgary supports the following section of LIVING A CREATIVE LIFE‘s Artistic Exchange focus area:
Outcome: Made-in-Calgary artistic work has a high profile outside the city and is often found on tour in other regions, provinces and countries.
Driver: Raise the profile of our outstanding artists and arts organizations.
Fun Fact // the Artist Trading Card party this Friday is the third of our promises made to the City and Mayor Naheed Nenshi’s 3 Things for Calgary! Our mission is to connect the local community and the arts through events, exhibitions and workshops. We may even re-pledge in the new year to keep the fun rolling.
