About Red Deer Arts Council

In the spring of 2010, three organizations, the Red Deer and District Allied Arts Council, Cultural Charter Partners of Red Deer and District, and the Cultural Development Association of Red Deer (Culture Link) merged to form the Red Deer Arts Council.

The purpose of all three groups was to bring arts and culture to the fore in our community. Their objective has been to develop the artists, the arts and culture delivery system, arts and culture engagement, and audience development.

The Red Deer Arts Council, will create a vibrant community for literary, performing and visual artists and cultural organizations. Our organization will build on the past history, experiences, and talents of its founding members to create a stronger and more viable organization that will thrive and grow into the future.


A dynamic community that celebrates and supports the arts.


Red Deer Arts Council provides leadership that makes Red Deer a better community by stimulating, developing, and promoting the arts through education, advocacy, and programming.
