Poet ONE speaks the beat poem below. Poet TWO punctuates with beat sounds at will, “Bop! Shabow! Whaaaaaaa.” Both punctuate the verses in between by snapping their fingers in time.

Feel the shoop at cSPACE Marda Loop,
Where creativity swirls, and passions stoop.
A Valentine’s bash, not just for two,
I Heart Arts, come and rendezvous.

On Thursday eve, February eight,
From five to nine, don’t hesitate.
Free spirits gather, all ages unite,
In the heart of the arts, bathed in neon light.

The Robin Tufts Trio, jazz sweet and divine,
Local artists groovin’, setting the sign.
Signature cocktails, Alberta’s crafty pride,
A sip, a swirl, on this artsy ride.

Exposed! On every floor, visuals unfold,
Exposure Photo Fest, stories untold.
Silent auction whispers, Marda Loop’s embrace,
Bid on delights, in this funky space.

So, join the beat of this artsy scene,
Where love for creativity reigns supreme.
Don’t miss the chance to play your part,
At I Heart Arts; the groove of your sweet heart.

Fueling Calgary’s Creative Potential raises $206k in support of cSPACE Projects’ vision of a city where creativity thrives in vibrant communities. ⁠
Our campaign kicked off with sponsorship from our neighbours at Rockwood Custom Homes and The Edward/Section 23, Calvert Home Mortgage, and a $50k donation from the Galvin Family Fund for which we are deeply appreciative. Following the success of our Fueling Creativity donor event on November 2nd, we express our heartfelt thanks to many individuals, including one anonymous donor who contributed $100k to support cSPACE’s creative placemaking efforts.⁠
The result is that our fall campaign not only met but exceeded its $100,000 target, collecting over $206k in contributions. With sincere gratitude, we recognize each of our sponsors, donors and neighbours from the entire community who believe in our community-building mission to ignite Calgary's Creative Potential. Thank-you one and all!⁠
These incredible contributions, as well as the support of our amazing partners in 2023 at Calgary Arts Development, Calgary Foundation, the City of Calgary, and the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, allow cSPACE to pursue vibrant city building in earnest.⁠
For more on the impact of your donations on vibrant city-building, read our Year In Review in the link in our bio.⁠
