Our Approach

The 7 Arts of YYC is an invitation for you to experience Calgary  – a city of creativity.  Colourful photographs compliment the captivating, and even more colourful, stories about the various forms of art, and the ones who bring the magic to life.

A unique section, for a unique city full of people who adore theatre and wine as much as they love their hockey and beer.  Each story comes alive with images and articles that show the inner beauty and diversity of a city that equals the beauty and diversity that surrounds it.

The original seven arts are architecture, dance, music, painting, performing, poetry, and sculpture.

In YYC these forms of art also embody the magnificent outdoors, various forms of movement, literature, sound, photography, sports and of course Calgary’s amazing culinary.
