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 Columbia Basin Trust’s Arts, Culture and Heritage Program.
“This is the 17th year that CKCA has been able to provide financial support for arts and heritage projects across the Basin,” said Jacquie Hamilton, CKCA chair.
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.
Find out more and get application forms by visiting www.basinculture.com or phoning CKCA at 250-505-5505 or 1-877-505-7355.
Applications must be received by March 7 or March 21, depending on the program.
