Arts, Culture, and Heritage

Dragon DanceAlberta would not have its dynamic arts and culture endeavours without the profound contributions of volunteers and voluntary organizations and associations. Arts and culture reflects and sometimes shapes our society. Our diversity is simultaneously challenged and embraced. The intrinsic values of listening to a beautiful musical phrase, quietly contemplating a well-crafted landscape, turning the pages of a book that can’t be put down, reading an article about a social issue, partaking in a festival or a poets stroll or listening to a singer’s voice that sends shivers up the spine are precious and make our province a more interesting place to live. Horst Schmidt, a former Alberta Minister of Culture, once noted that, “Culture is a thing beyond value. It’s a backbone, the measure of how advanced a society is.”
