Our signature projects
People, community and art are important to us.
Arts on the Ave has organized and presented a broad range of activities: art showings, a variety of inter-disciplinary festivals as well as activities that blend artistic expressions in an educational, mentoring and sharing environment. Using the existing cultural fabric to enliven Edmonton’s inner-city neighbourhoods, Arts on the Ave has showcased local talent, and crossed boundaries to establish a multi-disciplinary arts cluster.
The organization is engaged with the city and dedicated to the community through the cultivation of positive urban renewal. It is through culture-led urban regeneration initiatives, a vision of creative spaces and place-making that these art-infused communities have begun to flourish and provide a safe, nurturing environment for artists to thrive.
Arts on the Ave is committed to creating traditions, signature events, and creative places. Some of the organization’s projects include:
- The Carrot Community Arts Coffeehouse (9351 118 Avenue) - Our home base
- Kaleido Family Arts Festival – Second weekend of September
- Deep Freeze: A Byzantine Winter Festival – Second weekend of January
