Chrysalis: An Alberta Society for Citizens with Disabilities

We endeavour to have people with disabilities accepted by and included in society for their abilities to contribute, and have the same rights and privileges as all citizens. Through the creative arts programming, individuals have not only developed their artistic talents, but have been able to reach into the community through annual art shows, online auctions, distribution of the yearly Chrysalis art calendar and numerous art displays housed at high traffic public places like the Edmonton International Airport and Community Natural Foods in Calgary. Thanks in large part to this exposure; many of the talented artists are being sought-after to create commission artwork for their supporters.
