Nominations are now open for the Mamdani Arts Leadership Award–Calgary’s only monetary award to honour the very best arts and culture volunteer board members in our community. You can complete a nomination using this online form.
“Volunteer board members are often the unsung heroes of our arts and culture organizations in our community, and this award is our chance to honour them for their expertise and commitment,” says Riaz Mamdani, CEO of Strategic Group.
The Mamdani Arts Leadership Award recognizes an arts volunteer board member who goes above and beyond to support the logistics, programming, operations and or culture of the organizations they choose to support. The award is named after the Mamdani family—champions of Calgary’s arts and culture sector.
Sponsored by Strategic Group, this is the fourth year for the Mamdani Arts Leadership Award. Previous winners were Arif Ansari with Sled Island and Peter Schryvers with the Beltline Urban Murals Project and Festival.
The deadline for nominations is 4:30pm on January 21, 2022.
