Culture, Heritage & Arts

Get here and you’ll see. The arts and culture scene in Alberta is booming. Dance, theatre, music, and history – it’s never been bigger or bolder. Now’s the time live it. • Full circle: Recorded human history goes way back in Alberta. Start at the beginning with First Nations history at Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park. Then, work your way to now with a tour of the Legislature Building. • Learn it: Public art and sculptures abound in Alberta’s cities. Decode their allegories with official city guides or a local who knows their stuff.
