About Us

The Banff Centre — at the intersection of art + ideas

New art and ideas are born at The Banff Centre every day. We support ground-breaking artists. We inspire visionary leaders. We convene trailblazing researchers.

The Banff Centre is the largest arts and creativity incubator on the planet. Our mission is inspiring creativity. Over 8,000 artists, leaders, and researchers from across Canada and around the world participate in programs at The Banff Centre every year.

Made in Banff. Shared with the World.

Arts programs: are at the core of The Banff Centre. Programming supports the commissioning and creation of new work by individual artists and arts collectives, and provides resources for collaboration and applied research. Training and professional development is offered at the post-graduate level in more than a dozen art forms.

Leadership Development programs: equip people who want to change the world with the skills to do so. The leaders we work with wake up to new possibilities, fresh ideas, and renewed courage and passion for the work they do in their organizations, and in the world we all share.

Conferences: at The Banff Centre provides delegates from Alberta, Canada, and around the world with exceptional meeting facilities in an environment that fosters inspirational learning. Net revenue from conference operations supports arts programming.
