Arts, culture, and heritage grants available!
Artists in all disciplines—as well as arts, culture and heritage organizations—are invited to apply for funding through the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA), which delivers the Arts, Culture and Heritage Program of Columbia Basin Trust.
“This is the seventeenth year that CKCA has been able to provide financial support for arts and heritage projects across the Basin,” said Jacquie Hamilton, CKCA Chair. “What a difference Columbia Basin Trust continues to make!”
For 2014/15, CKCA is receiving $706,000 from the Trust. Funding is available for: individuals and groups through community arts councils; minor capital projects; touring; arts and heritage mentoring/master classes; organizational development; major projects; artists in education; major exhibitions; major heritage capital projects; and new heritage projects. Applications are adjudicated once a year by local arts councils and the CKCA Steering Committee.
“We look forward to another year of helping to foster creativity and preserve our Basin heritage,” said Lynda Lafleur, Trust community liaison. “The work these people and organizations do touches the entire region and makes a difference to our communities and quality of life.”
Applications must be received by March 7 or March 21, 2014, depending on the program.
The Trust supports efforts to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin. To learn more about Trust programs and initiatives, visit www.cbt.org or call 1.800.505.8998.
