Calgary Arts Development – Jordan Baylon & Melissa Tuplin

Jordan Baylon and his team design and run Calgary Arts Development’s granting programs, supporting everything from professional development, ongoing operational support for organizations, and the creation of compelling art. The majority of his work is to meet and talk with artists working in all disciplines and contexts about the challenges and opportunities around their work, and to help them access resources and support. Recently, he has been very interested in inclusive design and how best to equitably support artists from diverse communities.

In her role as Community Investment Officer, she supports the Community Investment team in the design, implementation and administration of investment programs, and provides resources, assistance, and support to artists and organizations throughout the process of accessing investment programs.
