2020 marks the 30th anniversary for the Rozsa Foundation, which was founded in 1990 by Drs. Ted and Lola Rozsa to support and strengthen the arts sector in Calgary. In those 30 years, the foundation has awarded hundreds of grants, held 16 Rozsa Awards to celebrate the achievements of Alberta arts leaders, and worked with hundreds of arts administrators, leaders, and board members on their professional development. We developed new granting streams for emergency funding as well as to support new digital and online work. We coordinated and funded research and resources, moved our Arts Leadership programs online, and introduced the new IBPOC Arts Leaders Residency Grant. At 30 years, the Rozsa Foundation is proud to be a catalyst for ongoing transformational change in the arts, and to be a part of a vibrant and exciting arts community.

We are thrilled to see the amazing success stories created by the arts organizations we have supported, and know many more accomplishments lie ahead. Your stories of achievement are the reason the foundation continues its work, and are the best celebration of the past 30 years!

With that in mind, we invite you to tell us your stories of triumph below. If the Rozsa Foundation has been part of your journey, tell us your story in the form below, and share your sweetest successes in posts, tweets, and ‘grams with the hashtag #Rozsa30! We will be compiling all success stories and well wishes here, as well as articles related to the anniversary, and the photo gallery below will hopefully take you down memory lane.

For our 30th Anniversary, the Rozsa Foundation is looking forward to the success stories ahead. Your tales of resilience, of impact, of creativity and innovation that are waiting to be written are the fuel that will continue to feed the foundation, hopefully for many years to come. Cheers to a strong, vibrant, thriving arts sector!

Her Honour, the Honourable Salma Lakhani AOE, B.Sc.
