Capital Regional District grants aids arts’ community

More than $90,000 in grants go to 20 organizations in Greater Victoria

The Capital Regional District arts committee has awarded more than $90,000 in grants to 20 organizations in Greater Victoria.

The grants support emerging and established arts organizations that produce or present on a project to project basis including recurring, one time, or developmental projects.

“The project grant program is an important part of the investment we’re making in the arts,” said David Screech, chair of the CRD arts committee.

“Project grants enable smaller arts organizations to produce events that enrich our communities and the lives of all citizens in the Capital Region.”

The CRD Arts Development Service is supported by eight municipalities: Esquimalt, Highlands, Metchosin, Oak Bay, View Royal, Saanich, Sidney and Victoria.

The next deadline for grants is May 1.
