Arts Council Wood Buffalo offers a variety of programs, workshops, and events that are designed to create connections, build the capacity of our local arts community, and foster a culture of creativity in our region.

Since May 2020, artists engaged in conversations over the phone with seniors or Elders. The artists created new pieces of art using that conversation as their muse. Arts Council then purchased those art pieces from the artists and gifted them to the seniors or Elders with whom they were made.

Visit the Art of Conversation to learn more, apply for the program, or see what’s happening now.

The Business of the Arts (BOA) learning series offers local artists an opportunity to build their capacity to compete and thrive. The goal of the program is to provide local artists with the skills they need to flourish as entrepreneurs as well as artists, and to create a sustainable living from their artistic practice. BOA offers a variety of learning opportunities through online resources, workshops, and sessions on various business-related topics that are specific to artists’ needs.
