Prince George Receives $140K in Arts Grants
Prince George, B.C. – Good news for the arts community in Prince George.
The BC Arts Council has awarded five arts groups and culture organizations just over $140,000 in grants.
The recipients between March 1 and May 31, 2016 were:
-Prince George Conservatory of Music – $10,000
-Theatre North West Society – $70,000
-Prince George Symphony Orchestra Society – $23,400
-Prince George Regional Art Gallery Association/Two Rivers Gallery – $32,300
-Robson Valley Music Society – $4,500
The funding comes from a record-high $24 million that BC Arts Council receives annually from the Province to support artists, arts activities and culture.
Since 2001, the BC Arts Council has distributed about $259 million to artists, arts groups and cultural organizations across B.C.
Put it away, it is a small start towards your PAC.
for the performing arts groups among the recipients that is $103,000.
That money will all go to operating expenses.
The PAC would be built with money allocated to capital.
I know, difficult for some to understand. Money is money.
The community groups could close their doors for 50+ years and collect enough money this way to build a facility.
Then again, if they did not exist, they would not get any money from the province. ;-)
