“Year after year, I have been impressed by the variety of projects for which applicants seek funding. I encourage artists to apply to CKCA to advance their careers and create new works,” said Stephanie Fischer, Chair, CKCA.
“I encourage Columbia Basin non-profit organizations, small and large, to apply. They are the anchor and the driver for exhibiting artworks, showcasing live performers on stage, celebrating diversity and Indigenous culture and employing artists to engage people of all ages and abilities. Together they add to the livability, economy and health of communities in the Basin.”
“The Trust is pleased to partner with CKCA to support, grow and strengthen arts and culture in Basin communities. Increasing access to arts and culture experiences in the Basin adds to the vibrancy and well-being of the region,” stated Justine Cohen, Manager, Delivery of Benefits, Columbia Basin Trust.
