Columbia Basin – Artists in all disciplines—as well as arts, culture and heritage organizations—are invited to apply for funding through the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA), which delivers the Arts, Culture and Heritage Program of Columbia Basin Trust (CBT).

“The CKCA is extremely proud to be announcing the 16th year of our existence thanks to Columbia Basin Trust,” said Jacquie Hamilton, CKCA Chair “CBT’s ongoing and increasing support for arts and heritage activities throughout the area reaches all aspects of life in the Basin.”

For 2013/14, CKCA is receiving $706,000 from CBT. Funding is available for: individuals and groups through community arts councils; minor capital projects; touring; arts and heritage mentoring/master classes; organizational development; major projects; artists in education; major exhibitions; major heritage capital projects; and new heritage projects. Applications are adjudicated once a year by local arts councils and the CKCA Steering Committee.

“There is growing recognition of the importance of creating vibrant communities through arts, culture and heritage activities and facilities,” said Gary Ockenden, CBT Director, Community Initiatives. “Not only does this sector enrich our fundamental quality of life, but it also benefits our local economies and our tourism appeal and fosters social well-being of Basin residents.”

Find out more and get application forms by visiting www.basinculture.com, contacting your local community arts council or phoning CKCA at 250.505.5505 or 1.877.505.7355.

Applications must be received by March 8 or March 22, 2013, depending on the program.

CBT supports efforts to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin. To learn more about CBT programs and initiatives, visit www.cbt.org or call 1.800.505.8998.
