Possible Opportunity for the CCAA

The City of Calgary, in conjunction with the EPCORE Centre for the Performing Arts, and the Olympic Plaza Cultural District are starting up a new initiative called Sunday Art Market in the Plaza. They are inviting local artists to submit applications to be a part of this event. Every Sunday from Jun 22nd to August 31st, there will be an outdoor (indoor if weather doesn’t cooperate) art market. This first year, it is being offered free of charge to artists on a first come first serve basis. I am in the process of finding out if they will accept a “group” application, whereby the CCAA would be the booth, but each Sunday would promote a different set of artists. There is the potential to have 22 artists participate under the CCAA umbrella. The Art Market wants the vendors to be there for as many of the 11 Sundays as possible, so this would let many of us participate, but not feel over burdened with having to set up and tear down displays for 11 weeks.

We don’t have much time to organize this, as the cut off for application is June 10, and then after that, only 2 weeks until the opening day.
