The WRECK CITY Residency is one of 200 projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program, developed to fund arts during the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation. WRECK CITY is one of 3 Calgary-based arts initiatives to be awarded this grant, including Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society, Ghost River Theatre, and Czapno Ensemble (Old Trout Puppet Workshop). These projects were chosen from over 2000 applications across the country. With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
