GlobalFest’s 2020 Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival and the One World Festival
This is the first summer since 2003 that GlobalFest’s Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival won’t be lighting up the sky above Elliston Park. Instead, this year GlobalFest will focus on the OneWorld cultural programming that is an integral part of the festival experience, with a series of online events as part of Alberta Culture Days.
Beltline Urban Murals Project
The Beltline Urban Mural Project (BUMP) is an award winning community-driven project to showcase art, promote tourism, improve the public realm and build community spirit in Calgary. Now entering its fourth year, BUMP has curated a diverse portfolio of local, national and international artists who have created eye-catching, inspiring and beautiful murals in Calgary. The project continues to expand with the 2020 BUMP Festival celebrating art, music and community.
Like so many of you, as we face the daily challenges that grip the entire world as a result of COVID-19 we find ourselves looking for small moments of joy, connection and comfort. Whether it's a listening to a sonnet, watching a funny video, doing yoga, or baking bread, these acts are gifts that soothe those parts of us that are suffering, and help us to brave another day marked by uncertainty, loneliness and loss.
