Starts April 24th, 2015 - Ziriguidum is a Brazilian Portuguese word with a strong African tone that expresses the sounds of drums and other percussion instruments used in Samba and Carnival music. DJD welcomes Cia.Vata, a celebrated dance and music company from Brazil, to share the stage for a highly theatrical evening of live music and dance. The production will feature Cia.Vata and DJD, each performing half the show, with one piece combining the two companies. Don’t miss this bold and exciting international collaboration.



Carmina Burana

April 25th, 2015 - Carl Orff’s dramatic cantata based on bawdy Medieval poetry is one of classical music’s most irreverent pieces, appearing in countless films and adverts. This riveting choral work resounds with infectious rhythms and memorable tunes, representing the human experience - warts and all.



Artist & Designer Forum at Olds College

April 25th & 26th, 2015 - Drawing artists & designers from all levels of experience, the PARK Emerging Artist & Designer Forum is an educational weekend event focused on teaching attendees how to continue to grow and sustain their businesses in the creative industry. With high-value informational sessions and workshops showcasing the expertise and innovative insights of industry professionals, the Forum sets the stage for the incubation of this knowledge.

Earth Day

Rip Rap @ The New Gallery

Until May 9th - The New Gallery is pleased to present Rip Rap, a solo exhibition of new works by Krista Belle Stewart. The artwork exhibited draws on images from the 1960’s publications, Native Funk and Flash and Indian Artists at Work as well as research from Stewart’s recent residency with the Nisga’a Museum. The exhibition as a whole undermines the linear and deliberate meaning-making imposed by the institutions who assemble archives and shape history.
