About Us

Our Story

CAMP is a Calgary-grown initiative, brought to life as an idea in 2013 by Wild Forest and emerged as a festival in 2014. The festival further developed logistically through a long-standing friendship with FITC. CAMP is a labour of love with the mission to celebrate creative technology, art and design.

By sharing and shaping experiences that educate, challenge and inspire at the annual CAMP Festival, national recognition quickly followed. Over time, CAMP Festival shed its for-profit operating model and restructured as a non-profit organization to become the Council of Artists and Multimedia Professionals.

CAMP–an accurate banner for the spectrum of services and events the organization has expanded to include. CAMP takes shape because of the contributions from our partners, sponsors and volunteers as well as the local and international artists that lend a helping hand each year. Your participation does the rest.
