Celebrating 25 Years of Supporting Art in Edmonton

I heART Edmonton Scavenger Hunt

Did you know that this year, the Edmonton Arts Council turned 25? To celebrate, we want to give back to the people that help make Edmonton's arts community extraordinary, and encourage Edmontonians to get out and enjoy the art in their city.

Over the next 12 weeks (until Nov. 7), we plan to give away more than $10,000 in prizes - you could win things like tickets to exciting events, swag from your favourite collective, and unique pieces by local artists. Make sure you follow along because the prizes and prompts will change every two weeks.

For weeks 5 + 6 of the hunt (September 13 - September 26), we are giving away:

  • $500 from the Winspear/ESO
  • A $100 gift basket from I AM Indigenous Artist Market Collective
  • 1 swag bag that includes a create box from the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, a $50 gift card to TIX on the Square, a cinema six-pack from Metro Cinema, and a book by an Edmonton-based author!

The prompts for Weeks 5 + 6 are:

PROMPT 1: Take a selfie with your favourite #yegmural
PROMPT 2: Check out some happenings in the Square, or visit us at TIX on the Square
PROMPT 3: Tell us about your favourite online arts experience
PROMPT 4: Check out an EAC Summer City Comeback show or a Festival in a Box parade
PROMPT 5: STAY TUNED LATER THIS WEEK!

How do you get started? Just follow the EAC on social media (on Instagram at @yegarts and on twitter at @artsedmonton), sign up for our EAC Weekly newsletter or visit edmontonarts.ca for details on the latest prompts and prizes.

We'll post new prompts throughout every two-week period, and a maximum of five (5) entries are welcome per person over the two-week period. Send us your entries by tagging us on social media (be sure your settings are set to public), or if you aren't on social media, email us your entry with the subject line I heART Edmonton (info@edmontonarts.ca) or drop your form off at TIX on the Square.

  • Email us at info@edmontonarts.ca with the subject line I heART Edmonton - whether you share photos, drawings or a line or two about your experience, we'd love to hear from you!
