About this Walk

Did you know when you walk down Stephen Avenue, you are just steps away from some of Calgary’s most intriguing arts spaces?

We’ll go for a walk around the blocks between 1st Street SE and 1st Street SW and suss out some of these spaces —  a place where the newest tech and the most traditional forms of music happily co-habit; creative space in the base of the Calgary Tower; Stephen Avenue’s newest art gallery and Calgary’s oldest theatre; and a place where the arts and veterans happily co-exist.

And the best news? You can book all of these spaces for your next event. By renting space from an arts organization, you support their work in our city.

As the city’s designated arts development authority, Calgary Arts Development supports and strengthens the arts to benefit all Calgarians. We invest and allocate municipal funding for the arts provided by The City of Calgary and leverage these funds to provide additional resources to the arts sector. SpaceFinder Alberta is an online marketplace that links organizations that have space to rent with those who need space.
