For the fifth consecutive year, This is My City Art Society is organizing its interdisciplinary festival of art from the margins.
This year’s festival kicks off with several great visual art exhibits and continues through April 27th with film, exhibits, music and workshops.
Formed in 2010, This is My City Art Society (TMC) is a not-for-profit organization that works with all comers and all agencies that support the homeless, those at risk of homelessness and other marginalized citizens.
This is My City believes that the creative voice of every citizen has value. Through ongoing art programs and workshops, TMC artist-mentors brings opportunities for positive creative expression into the lives of some of Calgary’s most marginalized citizens. At the yearly festival we showcase the amazing work that has been developed throughout the year.
Previous projects include; Beltline House Project and the yarnbombing project of the house in Hillhurst/Sunnyside, murals in Brentwood & East Village and numerous exhibits, documentary screenings, book launches and other performances.
