July was awesome, but August is going to be AWESOMER!

It's been a busy summer this year here at Awesome Foundation Calgary!

In July, AF Calgary along with some of the other existing chapters in Canada were featured nationally in a Postmedia News piece talking about how the AF movement is spreading across the country, and we held our fourth Pitch 'n Party night at the Calgary Drop-In Centre with local favorites and special guests The Heebee-Jeebees headlining the entertainment for the night.

If you missed out on the July festivities, here's a taste courtesy of Chris Hsiung from Hidden Story Productions:

August promises to be an even busier month here in Calgary, as two of the projects we've funded thus far are ready to come to fruition!

Here's what we have on tap this month:
  • Wednesday, August 10: Deadline for submissions for the $1,000 August prize. To apply, fill out this handy-dandy web form! As always, submissions will be taken until 11:59 p.m.
  • Friday, August 12: July AF Calgary Fellows Claudia Bustos and Vlad Amiot will debut their project Illuminating Calgary Landscapes in Calgary. The location is still a secret (for now), but expect more details as the big day approaches!
  • Sunday, August 21: May AF Calgary Fellow Kiran Somanchi will debut his "MP3 Experiment" project, Audio Mob YYC at Sien Lok Park at 2 p.m. If you'd like to be "in the know" and help make this event a success by participating in it, or would like to learn more about the project in general, visit AudioMobYYC.com or read our press release.
  • Thursday, August 25: The fifth AF Calgary Pitch 'n Party night! This month, it'll be held at the DaDe Art & Design Lab in the beautiful neighborhood of Inglewood. The fun starts at 6 p.m. and we hope to see you there!
As you can see, lots happening this month here on the home front, and we hope you'll be a part of it!
