Cards For Community

In September, we invited Calgarians to invite us -- and the rest of Calgary-- into their neighbourhood by designing a postcard to show and tell what they love best about where they live. 

 

We heard back from around 250 people representing around 120 neighbourhoods and these postcards are exhibited in February 2022 at Loft 112.


From the 200+ evocative postcards submitted, we have selected 23* different postcards that have been printed and make available to you at no cost** . Each postcard is available in a neighbourhood location of which it celebrates.

Consider this a car rally, a treasure hunt, an opportunity to explore Calgary through art, story and neighbourhood treasures!

**2 postcards available in local schools and not available to the public except through purchase. See how below
