The CRD Arts Commission awarded grants worth $102,500 to 25 organizations in region.

They support production of a wide range of events in theatre, music, visual and literary arts, as well as a variety of festivals spanning film, music, dance, visual art and the arts of diverse cultures.

“The eight municipal partners of the Arts Development Service strongly believe in our region’s arts organizations and the role they play in creating a healthy and vibrant community,” said Colin Plant, chair of the commission. “Project grants encourage creativity, support innovation and help our arts organizations provide programming that provides accessible events for all ages and interests.”
