Live Art. Love SAAG.

Last year we were proud to launch our Live Art. Love SAAG. campaign, with the aspiration of extending and promoting cultural programming into a host of communities in southern Alberta. Recognizing the value of arts and culture in shaping meaningful lives, our goal is to raise $1 million in the next three years.  You can support this mission for our community in many different ways including corporate sponsorship, individual giving, and more.  Information about this campaign and the initiatives it will support is included in both our Sponsorship Opportunities Guide and our Donor Opportunities Guide.
