Apply now for arts and culture grants
People and organizations in the Columbia Basin wanting to pursue arts and culture projects are invited to apply for grants from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA).
The application period is now open, with deadlines on March 1 or 8, depending on the program.
CKCA grants—funded by Columbia Basin Trust and managed by the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council—are available for all art disciplines, for both individuals and arts and culture organizations in the Basin.
“The arts and culture sectors are incredibly important to our communities. The CKCA board is grateful for the Trust’s continued support, and is always impressed by the breadth and creativity of the grant applications that are submitted,” stated Denise Baughan, CKCA Chair.
“The Trust’s funding allows artists to grow, and it creates opportunities for the many arts and cultural organizations that apply to celebrate the diversity and individuality of the communities that make up the Basin. We are excited to see what this year’s round of applications will be and look forward to continuing to witness the ongoing positive impacts that this funding creates for the communities.”
“The Trust is pleased to partner with the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council to provide people living in the Columbia Basin region with opportunities to access and enjoy arts and culture. Together we are fostering creativity, cultivating a cultural legacy and adding to the vibrancy and well-being of the region,” said Justine Cohen, Manager, Delivery of Benefits, Columbia Basin Trust.
