Grant Description
Grants of up to $10,000 to British Columbia nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to promote and enhance arts in the community. Funding is intended to broaden the community's cultural experiences by engaging local artists to participate in local arts activities. The goal of the grant is for artists to be active members of their community, with creative activities that function as a catalyst for greater community involvement. Eligible projects benefit the City of Kamloops.

 A diverse and well-rounded cultural community seeks the involvement of artists at all levels: amateur, emergent, and professional. Priority will be given to those creative initiatives that function as a catalyst for great community involvement in the arts.
