Who We Are

Sled Island is a charitable organization with the mandate of fostering understanding and appreciation of music & arts underrepresented in mainstream media, and to nurture the local artistic community through performance and educational opportunities. Our main activity is the presentation of the annual Sled Island Music & Arts Festival, a pillar of Calgary’s cultural calendar taking place each June, that brings together thousands of artists, volunteers, partners, and attendees from across the country and beyond. We also present year-round artistic and educational programming through numerous community partnerships, aimed at increasing awareness of Sled Island on an ongoing basis.

Sled Island is a community-centric organization driven by values of curiosity and diversity, on and off the stage, and committed to principles of equity, anti-racism, and anti-oppression. We recognize the systemic lack of representation of equity-deserving communities in the current non-profit art space, and strongly encourage members of Indigenous, Black, and racialized communities; people with disabilities; people identifying as LGBTQIA2S+; and women to apply.

Would you require any accommodation during the application or hiring process, please contact us at hr@sledisland.com so we may meet your needs.

Guest Blog: connectFirst Credit Union

None

We can’t wait to join the party! 

You love music, and so do we. That’s why we’re so excited to have the opportunity to support Sled Island this year.

But who are we and why are we the presenting sponsor?

First things first: we’re not a bank. connectFirst is a credit union, which means our members are not numbers, they’re one of us. Literally. We talk a lot at connectFirst about building a brighter future for all Albertans and creating a movement of hope. We see so much optimism in our members, their businesses, and their communities. We believe that when Albertans come together great things happen, and we want to create a place where our members feel inspired and supported.

That’s why we’re here. To get inspired by this incredible festival and help create community connections.
