Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity is a unique "village of the arts" operating year round, offering over 100 programs in the performing, visual, media, and literary arts. Over 8,000 artists, creators, and thinkers at all career stages from across Canada and around the world attend our professional and creative development programs each year. From recent graduates to artists at the forefront of the international scene, we have something to offer everyone.
Artists come to the Banff Centre for a variety of reasons - some are making the transition from school to a professional career or are on leave from orchestras, dance companies, universities or other professional organizations; some come to develop new work for performances, auditions, exhibitions, or publication; and others come to experiment with a new technology or explore a new medium or collaboration. Our programs, staff, and facilities provide the time, space, and support for creative, professional, and artistic growth at one of the most profoundly inspiring campuses in the world.
