Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

A Demographic Profile of Calgary's Arts Sector

The purpose of this survey was twofold: 1). To provide detailed data necessary to construct a demographic profile of Calgary’s arts sector, and 2). To understand the extent to which Calgary arts organizations have access to policies and procedures that promote equitable and diverse workplaces.

This report focuses on the demographic information collected through a voluntary self-disclosure form. Organizations were asked to distribute a link to the online voluntary self-disclosure form to all artists, administrators and volunteers who worked with them in the fiscal year beginning in 2016. On average, organizations had 32% of their artists, administrators and volunteers report through the online form.
