Augmented Reality (AR) adds graphics, sounds, touch and feedback into what we already see in front of us, through a device like an app on your phone. AR uses an existing display and overlays virtual information on top of it. You’ve probably already encountered AR without even realizing it – think Snapchat filters and Pokémon GO. Unlike Virtual Reality (VR) which transports you to a different world, AR transforms your own personal reality and perspective. The AR application, Augle, is available for download in the App Store and Google Play.
For the second year, Inglewood showcases business windows though a combination of mural, animation and music, viewed with the Augle App. The Art Walk takes place over Chinook Blast, from January 21st to February 28th, 2022, and this year includes East Village. Northern Reflection Augmented Reality Art Walk is a free, outdoors, immersive art experience for everyone to enjoy. Check out @inglewoodyyc as the tour rolls out.

This year’s windows in partnership with Inglewood BIA,and Calgary Municipal Land Corporation, presented by MAUD Collective and Chinook Blast. There are a total of 47 artists featured this year across 16 different murals.

Inglewood is currently hosting a six-week augmented reality exhibition, Northern Reflections on Thursday, starting January 21 and running through the end of February.
The exhibit is part of Chinook Blast, a winter art festival happening throughout Calgary from February 11 – 28.
Eleven teams of artists (painters, animators and musicians) have taken over the business windows in Inglewood to celebrate the power of music, art and business. The exhibition is a partnership between The Inglewood BIA and Maud Collective, who, alongside a panel of judges, determined the artists that will create augmented reality murals on businesses around Inglewood.
The murals have been paired with music produced by local and international musicians, and an interactive experience when users download the free Augle Apponto their smartphone. To use, Calgarians can simply activate the AR camera in the app, point their phone at the image and see augmented reality artwork in action.
Please note: There may be unresolved bugs with the Augle app. As we target the issues and work out solutions, we’d love to know what’s happening. Your feedback is really important if there are any technical issues occurring. For this reason, please report any issues with the app here: https://bit.ly/3sLQFhK

Historic, trendy and soulful, with great restaurants and one-of-a-kind retail, Music Mile is Calgary’s original main street. It’s a great place for a walk, popular for its fine dining, galleries and proximity to attractions like Fort Calgary, the Calgary Zoo, St. Patrick’s Island and RiverWalk.
Above all, MUSIC MILE is buzzing with musical energy generated by the talented musicians who perform here year round, in all genres, at an extraordinary variety of venues.
Where is MUSIC MILE exactly? It’s 9th Avenue SE from the Blues Can in Inglewood to Studio Bell (the home of theNational Music Centre) in East Village, with great live music houses like Ironwood Stage & Grill, 500 Cucina, the Alexandra Centre (home of the U of C Ballroom Dance Club and rehearsal hall for the Calgary Civic Symphony) and Fort Calgary (home to outdoor festivals and the newest live music stage on MUSIC MILE, Burnswest Theatre) in between.
Blocks near 9th in Inglewood and East Village are bursting with more music venues than you could imagine – Folk Fest’s Festival Hall, The Nash, Cafe Gravity, the Lantern Church, Charbar, Bite Groceteria, Calgary Opera’s Opera in the Village and more.
The Inglewood Night Market, Calgary Fringe, SunFest, JazzYYC and East Village bring professional live music onto the street throughout the warm months.
The concept of MUSIC MILE was nurtured into being through the work of a small cadre of volunteers now dubbed the MUSIC MILE CREW: Meg Van Rosendaal, Bob Chartier, Sarah Stephenson, Greg Curtis, Kerry Clarke, Chad Saunders, Jim Button, John Rutherford and Colleen Krueger – many of these names synonymous with live music in Calgary. Read more about how MUSIC MILE got started in STORIES.
And now it’s run by the MUSIC MILE stakeholders through the Music Mile Society of Calgary, a Non-Profit dedicated to promoting and enhancing MUSIC MILE as a popular pedestrian destination for Calgarians and tourists alike. This is just the start – watch it grow!
