Community Based Art & Community Engagement
YYC/LRT: Let’s make art and build community!
YYC/LRT is a research project of UCalgary researchers and Contemporary Calgary exploring how bringing contemporary art out of the gallery and into the streets can build community. Beginning in 2022 and continuing until August, 2023, YYC/LRT will be offering artmaking workshops and events in the Downtown West to build relationships and learn about what matters to folks in the Downtown West.
Join us for the opening during Contemporary Calgary's Free First Thursday, January 5, from 4:00 - 9:00pm.
