Building our community

The School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) supports the growth and development of dance, drama and music in all forms. The numerous opportunities in this field go beyond the scope of the performance, and include marketing, production, technical and set design and costume design.

It truly is a community of practicing artists— a community that the school sees as vital to build.

Our goal is to nurture the next generation of emerging talent by providing artists with a creative and innovative learning environment that will enable them to contribute to the arts and cultural community in Calgary and beyond.

Giving to the School of Creative and Performing Arts

While we are well-equipped to provide our students in the SCPA with a strong academic experience, we need the support from the community to continue to elevate the student experience and attract and graduate the best and brightest talent.

Committed donors who have given to the University of Calgary have provided the foundation for our student learning. Community support has allowed us to build state-of-the-art facilities such as the Rosza Centre, the Reeve Theatre, the Matthews Theatre and the Joyce and Quenten Doolittle Studio.

Your support will play an integral role in helping our students pursue their dreams. Your contributions will allow us to enhance our performance and rehearsal spaces, create international opportunities and offer scholarships and financial assistance to students.

With your help, we can provide our students with every opportunity to master their craft.
