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 next year.
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.

De-Vices - A Flashmob | This July
De-Vices will pop up downtown this July when you don't expect it.
Sixteen talented performers, in an artistic choreography of symbolic movement to sound, will tell a story of isolation due to technology, illustrating the power of our devices and how so often, they prevent us from properly connecting with each other.
The performances, directed by Calgary Director/Actor, Stacie Harrison, will take place in various downtown locations during the noon hour in July. We'll also be screening De-Vices live via Facebook at Noon MST on July 21 from www.facebook.com/humainologie
Film Festival Wins
Our film About Adnan in the 'under an umbrella we met' series recently received a Rising Star Award in the 2016 Canada International Film Festival in April. Watch the award winning film HERE.
Seven of our 'under an umbrella we met' series films were also part of the North West Film Fest in Edmonton in May.
Our exhibit 'under an umbrella we met', featuring eight short films where you can step into the actual, worn shoes of the person you are watching, launched on November 19, 2015 at Cannibale and then showed at Calgary City Hall in December, 2015. The exhibit has since been part of the Aga Khan Foundation Canada's "Together" touring exhibit, was at TedEx Calgary, various post-secondary institutions and will be shared at Calgary's Global Fest in August.
