CCIS presents New Canadian Artist Award

The Calgary Catholic Immigrant Society (CCIS) has established a New Canadian Artist Award to be presented at the Mayor’s Lunch for Arts Champions in 2013. The award was established to recognize that artists from all parts of the world enrich Calgary’s arts sector. This award recognizes and supports an individual artist who, due to their cultural background and relatively recent arrival to Canada, finds themself facing communication barriers, difficulties in transferring relevant credentials and isolation from the Calgary arts community. The intent of the award is to help these artists pursue their artistic work and connect with the institutions and support networks that are
available to Calgary artists.
