Arts Habitat believes that creative spaces are essential for a healthy community. We address inequity by providing accessible and appropriate spaces for artists in Edmonton. Creating space for the arts is a team effort. We are committed to listening and learning and encourage collaboration with artists, arts organizations, developers, and the City of Edmonton.
Arts Habitat acknowledges we are on the traditional land and gathering places of Treaty 6 and home to the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot Metis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. We also acknowledge the many other diverse Indigenous peoples whose ancestors have marked this territory for centuries. We accept our responsibility to restore and honour the Truth and Reconciliation calls to actions.
Arts Habitat stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. We are committed to listening and learning. We advocate for change and continue to support arts spaces and experiences that are welcoming, safe, accessible, and respectful.
Arts Habitat works proactively with partners to nurture our community’s spaces to become an integral part of the City’s vitality, identity, and pride.
