Over 140 arts, culture and heritage projects have been funded at a total of $706,000 by the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA), in partnership with Columbia Basin Trust. Funding applications were adjudicated in May by the CKCA Steering Committee, with input from community arts councils.
“It’s exciting to see the range of projects that were successful in their applications for the Trust funding through the CKCA. [...] The members of the CKCA Steering Committee are very pleased to continue our relationship with Columbia Basin Trust, fostering excellence in the arts and culture community across the region,” said Laura White, Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance Chair.
