AB Culture Days Celebrations at containR & Farewell Sunnyside!

containR by Springboard Performance is proud to celebrate Alberta Culture Days! 

Join us for a stellar lineup of programming at both Sunnyside and EV Junction locations.

Alberta Culture Days celebrations will also be containR's wrap-up weekend. After October 1st containR will be closed for the season and our Sunnyside Art Park will be moving!


In the fall of 2013 containR moved to the Sunnyside Triangle site. Over the past 4 years we have featured a thousand artists, hosted 150 community gatherings, held 200 meetings with the city, designed cultural placemaking policy, learned more about municipal permitting and Provincial building code than we ever thought possible, and was an intrepid test site for community building, arts activism, and citizen led public space. Through all of this we were embraced by the Sunnyside community. These neighbours, known for trailblazing community activism and community experimentation, invited us to play. Thank you for 4 glorious years of connecting community through art and creative ideas.

To neighbours Kerry Treherne, Gerald Wheatley, Tamara Lee, and many others, thank you. To the HSCA, Kensington BRZ, Calgary Permaculture Guild, local businesses, and community groups, much thanks for your support. To all the neighbours and Calgarians that have been inspired to participate in our little experiment in cultural placemaking, thank you.

containR is all of you.

Join us for the Alberta Culture Days weekend for a closing weekend party to complete the season and our time in the neighbourhood.
