$706,000 for arts and culture grants

Artists in all disciplines are invited to apply for funding through the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance

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 on behalf of Columbia Basin Trust.

“We’re proud that for 18 years we’ve been able to partner with the Trust to provide support for arts and heritage projects across the Basin,” said Jacquie Hamilton, CKCA Chair.

“These programs provide an opportunity for people involved in these areas to embark on new projects, improve their skills, share their talents and more.

For 2015/16, 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.

“The benefits of having a thriving arts, culture and heritage sector extend to all the residents of the Basin,” said Lynda Lafleur, Columbia Basin Trust Community Liaison. “Congratulations to CKCA in their efforts toward building sustainability for artists in the region.”

Find out more and get application forms by visiting www.basinculture.com, contacting your local community arts council or phoning CKCA at 250-505-5505 or 1-877-505-7355.

Applications must be received by March 6 or March 20, 2015, depending on the program.
