Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) is a leading centre for education and research, and a catalyst for creative inquiry and cultural development. We engage the world and create possibilities. As a pre-eminent voice of art, craft and design education in North America, ACAD’s most valuable resources are creativity, passion, and our students who are the lifeblood that keeps that amazing legacy alive.

“Art, craft and design education produces citizens that can think differently, have the ability to solve problems creatively, be innovative and strive for excellence. Our increasingly diversified economy now demands this dynamic and creative workforce and our students are rising to fill the need, “says Dr. Daniel Doz, President + CEO, Alberta College of Art + Design. “Students at ACAD will benefit immensely from a bursary that is created through Dinner by Design.
