Deadline: September 10, 2010
Cultural Services is pleased to announce a new pilot program which provides grants to community groups to support projects that celebrate and promote Vancouver's communities and neighbourhoods through arts and cultural activities ranging from amateur to professional practices.
Non-profit organizations, artists, community leaders, businesses and residents alike who are interested in celebrating the diversity of their communities, connecting with other people and organizations in their neighbourhoods, learning and exchanging ideas, pushing artistic limits and making a positive impact in neighbourhoods and communities, could be supported for specific planning initiatives, projects, and events to achieve these goals.
