Welcome to LEGIT the UAS' 18th Birthday Bash & Fundraiser!
We're working hard to make this event our most sucessful fundraiser yet! Please support our organization by helping us reach our Indiegogo goal of 1,000.00 by November 17th!
Come dressed in your party rock/hipster/gang-star best!
A night bringing more mind blowing ART & MUSIC to the Calgary stage. The night will consist of a DJ Dance Party (featuring Chicks on Deck and Dustin Wolfe), a themed Photo-Booth (hosted by Aran Wilkenson-Blanc) and a rad showing of Art and a super-sized Raffle, plus OH so much more!
The last time we go together for a Party like this Calgary, it was Sparkle Mania... This time the UAS is turning EIGHTEEN!! And we want YOU to JOIN US and be apart of our sweet sweet eighteen. We would like to OFFICIALLY invite you to come down to the UAS and help us create local history and celebrate this momentous occasion.
The UAS is dedicated to creating a safe venue for you to party, art, and mingle in. This event is inspired by every eighteenth birthday party you wish you had, so come and crush a cupcake or two, show your support for our organization and get that second chance at your most epic eighteen! ;)
This event is (PWYC) Pay What You Can at the door, or pick up a rad-tastic VIP pass in advance. Balla!
The vast majority of UAS's Funds come from fundraising events and the support of our members and the general public! Thank you!
About UAS: A Contemporary Art and Education Facility
UAS envisions a space where members from various corners of the arts community can gather, exhibit work, produce work, increase artistic knowledge through workshops, and access dialogue and discourse through access to others in the community, in a casual and supportive atmosphere. UAS is interested in supporting parallel activities such as curatorial practices, art review and critical writing, performance, and off-site art projects. UAS is an open and inclusive society that is not discriminatory towards any artistic practice, but is simply focused on creating an environment that encourages growth and excellence in art.
UAS showcases and provides production facilities to professionals, and occasionally students in the emerging stage of their artistic development for the purpose that their work be considered and recognized by the arts community and the general public.
UAS is a non-profit, artist-run organization that provides infrastructure and peer-juried exhibition space to Calgary's pre-emerging artists and showcases visual arts and artists from diverse cultures and communities within the city. UAS functions as a community for artists just finishing their arts education and acts as a meeting place for artists, arts administrators and the public.
UAS is supported by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Calgary Arts Development Authority and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
