Calling All Interested Community Partners in Calgary!

Friends of the Federation of Calgary Communities is partnering with RISE UP to bring pop-up arts performances to communities across Calgary!

Be part of a RISE UP Weekend pop-up performance to celebrate the safe relaunch of live arts events in Calgary this summer. RISE UP is searching for up to 20 community association presenting partners.

If you want to engage your residents, there are new to “pop-up live arts events” and are willing to provide volunteer support, then apply for this cool initiative.

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. There is no cost for your community association to participate.

Apply Today!

Applications open as of July 6, 2021 and will be accepted until July 22 at 11:59 pm (deadline may be extended until all 20 spots are filled)



Visit RISUPYYC.COM to learn about events all summer long!

If selected as a community partner, you will work directly with the RISE UP team to help choose the ideal date, artists/performers and location(s) for your community’s safe pop-up performance. On the day of the event, you will provide volunteer support to help ensure the safe delivery of the performances in your community. After the event you need to send a few pictures and a paragraph telling us how it went.  That is all it takes to RISE UP with pop-ups!
