The Government of Alberta recognizes the arts and culture sector as an essential part of our quality of life.

The Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA), a crown agency, sees an Alberta where vibrant arts communities inspire creativity and innovation and is part of the fabric of how we live and work.

The AFA funds, encourages and supports the development of arts in Alberta, while maintaining and expanding the AFA art collection as a resource for all Albertans.

AFA grant funding supports creative activity in the performing, visual, literary and the film/video arts disciplines. AFA grants serve every region in the province and enhance the province's economy and quality of life.

Since 1972, the AFA and its predecessor foundation, the Alberta Art Foundation, have collected and managed a wide range of artwork that continues to grow and expand. Pieces from this collection are exhibited and showcased locally, provincially, and nationally—enjoyed by thousands of Albertans.

Visit the AFA website for more information.
