Arts on the Ave

*Arts on the Ave*, a registered charity, sees 118 Ave between NAIT and Northlands as a place whose "personality" is vividly expressed through the arts. The Ave has a dynamic momentum, an "arts pulse" where the artist and community continually engage.

At its core, Arts on the Ave believes in cultivating artistic fellowship through arts celebrations, signature arts festivals, and traditions. The Society's goals are to create opportunities for all individuals to experience the joy of artistic expression and to nurture creative environments. Arts on the Ave is comprised of visual and performance artists, literary and film artists, photographers and musicians that collaborate to create in the 118 Avenue District.

Arts on the Ave has organized and presented a broad range of activities: extensive art showings, a variety of inter-disciplinary festivals as well as activities that are a blend of artistic expressions in an educational, mentoring and sharing environment. Using the existing cultural fabric to enliven Edmonton's inner-city neighbourhoods, Arts on the Ave has showcased local talent, and crossed boundaries to establish a multi-disciplinary arts cluster.

The organization is engaged with the city and dedicated to the community through the cultivation of positive urban renewal. It is through culture-led urban regeneration initiatives, a vision of creative spaces and place-making that these art-infused communities have begun to flourish and provide a safe, nurturing environment for artists to thrive.

Arts on the Ave is committed to creating traditions, signature events, and creative places. Some of the organization's projects include:

Kaleido Family Arts Festival – Second full weekend of September
Deep Freeze: A Byzantine Winter Festival – Second weekend of January
The Carrot Community Arts Coffeehouse (9351 118 Avenue)
