Rozsa Arts at the Library

Connecting patrons to ideas, experiences, and inspiration

Supported by Mary Rozsa de Coquet, Rozsa Arts at the Library is an initiative that brings artists to Library locations for free performances and workshops. These artists work in genres that include music, dance, puppetry, drama, oratory and circus arts, and more.

In addition to providing Calgarians with access to a variety of arts and culture experiences, Rozsa Arts at the Library supports emergent artists to build their brand and reach new audiences.


Call for Performing Artists

Rozsa Arts at the Library features emerging artists for virtual or in-person performances as restrictions allow.

If you or your collective is selected, we will consult you about Library location or venue and whether you will perform in-person, virtually, pre-recorded, or recorded live. Your flexibility may be required for possible additions to the performance such as Q&A segments.

The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, visitors, and partners is our top priority. All programming will be planned in accordance with any COVID-19 restrictions.

The Rozsa Arts at the Library application is currently closed for 2021.
