PARK (Promoting Artists Redefining Kulture) is a Calgary-based non-profit organization to promote and support local emerging artists and designers.

Founded in 2008 by then University of Calgary student Kara Chomistek, the organization began as a means to display the creative works of her friends. Since then, PARK has expanded to include annual outdoor markets, pop-up fashion booths and fashion shows across Western Canada.

PARK provides emerging Canadian designers with a means to showcase their work and gain exposure on a national level to help build promising and long-lasting relationships in the fashion industry.
