IAACC and the CMO

International Avenue Arts & Culture Centre serves as an Arts, Recreation, and Community Hub, celebrating the rich ethno-cultural diversity thriving in Calgary’s Greater Forest Lawn (GFL) communities. Our primary partnership is with the Calgary Multicultural Orchestra (CMO), a free el Sistema music program serving over 70 children throughout each school year.

Our initiatives also include:

  • Eyes on the Ave: a partnership between IAACC, Springboard Performance, and Antyx bringing community-based programming and photography to the ARCH site featuring placemaking using shipping containers.
  • The GREAT in Greater Forest Lawn: a 3-way partnership between the International Avenue BRZ, The United Way, and IAACC. this grassroots, citizen-led granting initiative provides seed funding to 7-12 citizen-led, creative community-building ideas annually. Community members present ideas that are voted on by the community.
  • The ARCH:  exploring collaborations that create shared space for arts, recreation, and community events.

IAACC is a Charitable Organization (Canadian registered charity number: 869328310RR0001).  Receipts will be issued for donations over $20.
