Calgary Arts Development Authority- Chair and Board Members

As the city’s designated arts development authority, Calgary Arts Development Authority (“CADA”) supports and strengthens the arts to benefit all Calgarians.

CADA invests and allocates municipal funding for the arts as provided by The City of Calgary. It then leverages these funds to provide additional resources. Through its granting and arts development programs, CADA supports hundreds of arts and culture organizations, individual artists, artist collectives, and ad hoc arts groups in Calgary.

CADA strives to increase and use its resources wisely, foster collaborative relationships, promote diversity and integrate arts into the lives of Calgarians.  CADA recently received a transformational increase in arts funding to support Calgary in becoming a more innovative city promoting an exceptional quality of life, a diversified economy, and shared prosperity.
