Arts Commons

Hub for Inspired Learning



ConocoPhillips Hub for Inspired Learning at Arts Commons (formerly EPCOR Centre for the Performing Arts) is home to Alberta Theatre Projects, Calgary International Children's Festival, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Downstage Theatre, One Yellow Rabbit, and Theatre Calgary.

Some teachers like to uncover curriculum through the lens of the arts. Others prefer to use our professional actors, dancers, artists and musicians to improve their skills directly. Whichever path you choose engages our youth. We equip them to respond to the complexities of our world today and in the future.

Arts Commons provides a unique location, in the heart of downtown Calgary, to develop well-rounded, creative, innovative and compassionate citizens who can problem-solve, collaborate, network and contribute to society, both socially and economically.

Ideas for inspiration could include:

  • Storytelling through music, dance and drama
  • Exploring light and shadows
  • Writing scripts, poems and stories
  • Uncovering the connections between art and architecture
  • Discovering math and science in set designs
  • Exploring a variety of perspectives that shape culture and community

Thank you sincerely for offering this outstanding learning opportunity to these young students of Calgary. You have truly helped them create memories about the Stampede and the Stampede Grounds that will last a lifetime. These fortunate students will see the Stampede through different eyes every time they attend
