On March 5, 2014, Calgary Arts Development presented Living a Creative Life: An Arts Development Strategy for Calgary to The City of Calgary’s Standing Policy Committee on Community and Protective Services. The committee heard from other Living a Creative Life signatories including Calgary Economic Development, International Avenue BRZ, Theatre Calgary and YMCA Calgary, and praised the collaborative nature of the strategy. Calgary Arts Development will present its four-year business plan and budget request, aligned with Living a Creative Life, to The City of Calgary later in 2014.

Living a Creative Life will serve as a foundation for transforming Calgary through the arts,” says Patti Pon, President & CEO of Calgary Arts Development. “We are gratified at the number and diversity of organizations that have already committed to taking action in alignment with the strategy.
