Create, do, or build something to experience for the NEXT 100 years or more

Listen to Ben Cameron

I think that whatever Calgary2012 winds up doing, ought to have this man involved. Bring him in as a consultant, an over seer, or just plain, "hey, what do you think about this?"

Horse Related Market

Have a "horse" related market with Equine art, tack, anything related to the horse industry. Artist should not be restricted to Galgary artists only. Let the whole world celebrate our horses!

Do something different

Bike/C-train symbiosis!

Let commuters take bikes onto the train at all hours! The current regulations clearly discourage cycling. A vertical storage system with hooks would help create space for all. More cyclists would also ease the parking issues we have around train stations.

The Great Canadian Tour

Calgary artists and cultural organizations could put together a national touring show (one big show together or several smaller shows) that would start to put a bigger emphasis on "exporting" Calgary's creativity. We already do this in a number of areas, but with extra support, 2012 could be a year when Canadians learn first hand what Calgary has to offer.

CALGARY: THE RIDE!

Have you ever ridden the Star Wars simulator at Disneyland? Imagine if we created a virtual reality simulator that would allow small groups of 20 people at a time to sit in a small theatre that can be moved using hydraulics.

The Calgary Wheel

Like The London Eye, the Star of Nanching or the Daikanransha in Odaiba, Japan, The Calgary Wheel would be striking against our current skyline, making us instantly recognizable to the world as one of the few cities to offer such an attraction. Part of what makes up Calgary's culture, is the physical beauty of our city. We have a magnificent skyline, why not show it off and make it accessible for everyone to enjoy? Placed ...more »

Fiddle Music Celebration

Calgarians have embraced the cowboy history and culture by celebrating the Calgary Stampede each year. What about showcasing the music those cowboys (and many of our ancestors nationwide/worldwide) would have cherished and enjoyed by celebrating the culture and heritage of fiddle music? I would like to see a fiddle celebration or festival in our city!
