About the Mountain View Arts Society

Mission Statement
The Mountain View Arts Society promotes and encourages a variety of artistic opportunities and events for the enrichment and enjoyment of the general public.

Our History
Nestled in the heart of Mountain View County in sunny Alberta lies the beautiful community of Didsbury. Didsburians were very proud to represent the province as the only Host Celebration Site between Airdrie and Red Deer during Alberta Arts Days 2011. Visitors were treated to an incredible showcase of the arts and culture that is found in Central Alberta - specifically Didsbury and Mountain View County!

The group of volunteers who put on the Mountain View Arts Festival wanted more, so at the end of 2011, they applied for, and received, incorporation of a society. Following the election of a very active, creative, and engaged Board of Directors, the wheels started turning and the next thing we knew, we were hosting and organizing different events in Didsbury Alberta (art show, rock concert, spring concert, arts festival). That tradition continues.

Besides hosting our own events, we want to help promote artists, dancers, musicians, writers, photographers, songwriters, actors, photojournalists, and artisans - those people in our towns who help create communities with depth and feeling. Our members want to share their skills and talents with each other to develop a strong and vibrant art community. We have the talent here - our goal is to make sure your lives are enriched by these individuals and businesses.

Sponsorship Opportunities
We give our business community an opportunity to show their support throughout the year, and to different, yet similar audiences. Most importantly to you, we support you at every turn!

What Makes Us Great

  • As one of the main economic drivers of our community, everything the Arts Society does is about community partnerships.
  • We have established a "Local First" shopping policy for all our events and programs. Your sponsorship dollars will be returned to you whenever possible.
  • We respect our volunteers. They have opportunities to share their talents, and to learn skills to help them grow.
  • We work with governments at all levels to promote the arts, bringing as much "new money" into Didsbury as possible, doing what we can to lessen the burden on our local business community and to promote Didsbury and Mountain View County.

The Mountain View Arts Society needs your financial assistance. Please consider becoming a sponsor for our many events and activities.
