Calgary Chamber: Artists in the Workplace Initiative

The Calgary Chamber, in partnership with Calgary Arts Development, has launched a new initiative called Artists in the Workplace. This program was kick-started by Calgary Poet Laureate, derek beaulieu, and connects businesses who have extra space with artists seeking space to work. 

The program allows businesses to identify themselves as having space available, and Calgary Arts Development will help match them with an artist or organization to animate their space. Businesses that participate in the program could be eligible for tax benefits from supporting the arts and collect some nominal rents. Calgary Arts Development will work closely with the business to help them understand what benefits are available to make the relationship mutually beneficial.
