We are a non profit organization currently looking for a Treasurer and Fundraising Committee Members. 

Create Kids Fest began in 2019 when musician and arts educator, Mandy Morris, saw the need for an arts festival for families in Calgary. In its first year, Create presented almost 20 artists and arts organizations over three days in two different venues. In 2020 Create Kids Fest will take over Calgary the week of May 25-30 with performances across the city.

This is a great opportunity for volunteers interested in providing feedback, laying the groundwork, and innovating processes during our first year as a Board putting on the Create Kids Fest.

Our Objectives:
- To create, develop and implement arts festivals for kids and families in Calgary.
- To ensure that the festivals and programs put on by Create allow children to experience the arts in a comfortable environment.
- Strive to provide art experiences that are accessible for all children in Calgary.
- To provide educational experiences for younger generations to learn about event production and art creation to develop a life-long appreciation of the arts.
- Develop opportunities for inter-generational community building, cultural awareness and emotional intelligence through art experiences.
