Calgary Centre for Global Community provides education, engagement and research opportunities to enhance and expand Calgarians' capacity for responsible, well-informed, effective global citizenship. Our work recognizes the interconnectedness of local and global issues and their impact on the well-being of our communities.
We also act as the umbrella organization for Humainologie, an international, multi-media production house, and The Code, a Calgary-based social enterprise initiative launching later in 2016.
Supported by the Calgary Centre for Global Community (CCGC), Humainologie is a production house whose work directly contributes to CCGC’s mission of inspiring and enabling effective global citizenship. We believe that the more we truly connect with ourselves and with others, the more we will naturally create a more humane global community.
"Humain" in French means both "human" and "humane". Humainologie recognizes the possibility of embracing both the opportunity to become more humane as a society, and the opportunity to recognize and accept our own and others' imperfect humanness. Somewhere between or within the two, is where we think there's an opening.

Group auditions will be held on Saturday, June 4 between 11am and
1pm in ten minutes time slots at Company of Rogues, 2nd floor, 1232 17 Ave SW
Performances will be on July 28/29 and August 4/5 over four lunch hours in downtown Calgary.
