Calling all creatives! We are currently seeking organizations or individuals (local artists, architects, designers) with a passion for the arts and the environment to share their vision with the local community. We invite anyone with an artistic vision to design an exhibit for the festival.

The theme of the competition is “Canada 150 & Our Energy Future”. Individuals or teams are able to work with different light materials, ice sculptures or any other creative ideas to design a winter light themed exhibit that either celebrates Canada’s 150th Anniversary or showcases renewable or alternative energy methods in its construction. Keep in mind, many of these exhibits will also include the stars of the Edmonton Valley Zoo themselves, the animals!

For more information, contact Christina.

Tri-Party Transportation Conference
May 7-9, 2018

Architects embrace and transform space. Trained to see edges, proportions and relationships, they hold a unique architectural perspective which allows them to observe a space, imagine a design, and create something new. With the ability to see space, comes the ability to see Spaces Between. Often overlooked, architects capture these interstices and turn them into inspiration and places of beauty.


The 2018 AIBC Annual Conference will explore the many interpretations of Spaces Between – where ideas that are seemingly opposed connect, where negative space encourages thoughtful design, and where innovation, technology and materiality meet. Be it conceptual, physical or technical, we invite you to bring your own perspective to this examination of Spaces Between and find where you can be both challenged and inspired.
