Visitors to Southern Alberta consistently remark on the willingness of this region’s artists and arts organizations to work together. The tendency towards collaboration and cooperation is a unique and noteworthy feature of this community.


M:ST invites you to lend your support to our next phase of innovative programming. The Festival is regularly promoted through local and national radio, television, magazines, and newsletter; as well as through our website and a Festival Guide distributed through our member organizations. M:ST Festival events are seen by thousands of viewers throughout Southern Alberta. Your community-minded contribution will help enrich the cultural life and landscape of Southern Alberta.
