With the community closely linked to the University of Calgary campus, residents and visitors will be able to take advantage of a wide range of live music, theatre, lectures and artistic events.
The University of Calgary Theatre alone hosts more than 175 events a year, including academically-based productions borne out of the dance, music and drama departments. Touring concerts and outside companies also enjoy frequent access to the U of C's spacious, well-designed theatre that will be located in the backyard of community residents.
Calgary has experienced an incredible growth in art and culture over the past decade, with new music, theatre, exhibits and outdoor art projects now a vital part of our city. University District seeks to capture the energy and urban spirit of Calgary's cultural scene, and will offer a variety of indoor and outdoor activities showcasing the best and brightest creative minds both locally and internationally.
With new and existing local facilities designed for art and culture, the community will become a destination for Calgarians of all walks of life and interests.
