Spotlight on ArtsSmarts

ArtsSmarts—an initiative launched by the Foundation in 1998 that is now a stand-alone organization—held its sixth national Knowledge Exchange recently at the University of Calgary, on the theme of cultivating creative communities. One of the presenters at the meeting, John Eger, subsequently penned this piece in the Huffington Post: The Best Way to Grow the Economy? Creativity.
In other ArtsSmarts news, the program was one of six charities selected by Target Canada to receive a share of one million dollars through the Give with Target program.
