Calgary is getting very busy in 2012! With important events taking place this year, it is anticipated that the city will stay under the lights for months to come!
April 4th marked the day when Calgary officially kicked off the year as Canada's Culture Capital, this is significant in a city well known for it's oil and agriculture and very often underestimated for it's arts and culture!!
This year Calgary is taking advantage of this designation to celebrate the pride the Calgarians have for their heritage and way of life, through festivals, concerts, and legacy programs!
The celebrations started with the Sweet City Opening earlier this month, and will continue with more fun programs like the Sweet City Woman Lip Dub where the entire city is invited to participate in this creative program. Featuring Calgary's Culture City theme song Sweet City Woman, a video will be produced using the popular "Lip Dub" format, people like you and me will be filmed lip synching the song that will be dubbed over later by the original audio! It is scheduled for September 29 ad 30. Registration will open soon, so stay tuned as we will post more information on this and other Culture Capital events. You can also visit Calgary 2012 for more information.
The Cultural activities this year will coincide with Calgary Stampede celebrating its 100 anniversary! For this occasion the 2012 original poster artwork named " Vision and Dream" was revealed last summer, featuring a portrait of Guy Weadick, founder of the Calgary Stampede, with a young boy (Weadick himself ) at the forefront! It is meant to capture the spirit of Calgary's unique culture, says Harley Brown the artist who created it, and the continuity of the city's Western heritage and values throughout history! If you would like to take a look at this artwork, visit the Western Oasis! It will be displayed there until sold at the auction on May 14, 2012.
