With a provincial election underway, and the reigning PC party facing organized opposition from the left and right, Alberta’s political future is on everyone’s mind. What will the legislature look like after May 5th . . . or in five, ten or fifty years? Will we see party mergers, coalition governments, a robust Heritage Fund or even (dare we say it) a sales tax? Join us for a glimpse into apolitical crystal ball!

Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
