We are a non-profit, charitable organization devoted to the advocacy and development of the arts community in Edmonton. We will create a common ground for artists and patrons through promotional presentations, workshops and events. With public support and CGAS fuelling emerging and seasoned artists, together we will encourage the celebration of expression and enhance our city’s cultural pride.
CGAS provides opportunity for emerging artists to work and explore their passions by developing a progressive arts facility and contributing to an open creative community.
By building and operating a multidisciplinary arts collective, CGAS will provide a platform of arts orientated workshops, performances and events to further the development of Edmonton’s emerging arts scene.
