Welcome to Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD).

ACAD would like to gratefully acknowledge that the institution sits on the traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy, which includes the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Tsuu T'Ina and the Stoney Nakoda First Nations.

The City of Calgary is also home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.

Since 1926, ACAD has inspired thousands of students to pursue their dreams. 

As Alberta's only dedicated art, craft and design institution, we're proud to play an important role in nurturing creativity and driving innovation in our province and around the world. From our academic programs to grass-roots community partnerships, there's a lot going on at ACAD – we hope you'll join us.

What makes ACAD so unique?

Get involved! We'd love to meet you.
