Rise UP


What is RiseUp?

RISE UP is a series of weekend pop-up performances to celebrate the safe relaunch of live arts events in Calgary this fall. It will be coming to multiple communities, read on to see if yours is one of them!

The RISE UP Weekend pop-up performances are an initiative of the Friends of the Federation of Calgary Communities, thanks to a generous grant from The Calgary Foundation and administrative support from RISE UP.
