containR in Sunnyside is a new community destination in the heart of Kensington and Sunnyside. containR is a village of pop-up venues made up of redesigned and repurposed shipping containers.

containR is the first designated ART PARK in Calgary. containR in the grand scheme of things nurtures what needs to grow. 

There are already demonstration gardens, bee keeping, local food, rehearsal areas, incubator and experimental work spaces, locally built outdoor furniture and hand-painted murals. containR presents a 100 mile diet of arts and culture events and performances. containR nurtures creative minds, artists, thinkers, growers, and entrepreneurs.

There are rumours of a gallery, library, a theatre for the people, sculpture gardens, water catchment, solar power and well the mind boggles at what is possible. containR is here to help friendships, good relationships and local pride grow.

Be part of the containR ecosystem

You may have come to containR or you may have heard about containR. If you've seen our pop-up venue you know it's made from retrofitted shipping containers, currently residing in Sunnyside Calgary.

Thanks to your support we have been able to purchase our Theatre for the People shipping containR - one with large side doors that open to create a beautiful outdoor proscenium.
