"This is My City" Photo Walking Tour

Meet in front of City Hall, Macleod Trail SE

Cost: Pay what you can
Bring your camera and join artist Cat Schick and a photographer who has experience of homelessness on a walk through downtown areas that are off the beaten path. See the city from a new perspective and receive guidance on how to capture it in pictures.

Part of This is My City Festival on through May 3.


This is My City was a project initiated by The City of Calgary, Arts & Culture, which provided Calgary’s homeless community with increased opportunities for creative expression and engaged Calgarians in a dialogue about the issues surrounding homelessness and the place of art and culture in society today. The City of Calgary, Arts & Culture, has worked extensively with This is My City, (TMC) which is now a not-for-profit society that picks up where the original program left off. Many members of the artist-mentor team combined their talents and vision to take TMC to the next step through the creation of This Is My City Art Society, so that it might continue to grow and share this work with all Calgarians.
