Stephen Avenue: Studying Public Life + Public Space

October 1 - 9, 2018

The City of Calgary is undertaking a Master Plan for Stephen Avenue, with the intent of enhancing our city’s most iconic and memorable street. As one of Calgary’s premiere landmarks and destinations, a Master Plan is needed to:

  • Extend the energy and liveliness of the pedestrian mall westward along 8 Avenue S.W.;
  • Establish a new vision for Stephen Avenue that creates opportunities for private investment and redevelopment;
  • Create short and long-term strategies that can be implemented over time to make Stephen Avenue better for Calgarians and visitors.

As a first step, The City is reaching out to citizens, stakeholders and visitors to better understand the public life and public space of Stephen Avenue. We want to know what people enjoy or like about the Avenue, what could be improved, and what the opportunities are. We’ll be studying the public realm, engaging with citizens, and discussing a broad range of topics including: activities and events, public safety, social issues, economic vitality, mobility, history and placemaking.

HomeSpace and our sponsor BMO believe housing is a right, and with that - we also believe food is a right! Hand in hand with housing insecurity comes food insecurity for many Calgarians. That’s why we’re bringing our community partners and friends together for a free, public pop-up food market!

Positioned at the heart of the renewal of circus arts, Cirque Éloize has been creating moving performances filled with magic and emotion since 1993 and has become one of the leaders in contemporary circus arts. 

Arts Commons Presents Cirque Éloize’s latest adventure, inspired by the rich legacy of the Wild Wild West. America is expanding. The railroad is stretching westward to lands of untold promise. In the middle of the desert, a town comes to life. The Saloon doors swing open to reveal a motley cast of individuals, each with a tale to tell.

In Cirque Éloize’s Saloon, the timeless tunes of Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline set the traditional, epic scene for a fast-paced show with no shortage of audience thrills. Swing open the Saloon doors and enter a mythical world created by live music and the exhilarating pace of spectacular performances!
