Arts Evolution, for arts and cultural
organizations which present or create work, curatorial projects, want to undertake new arts and cultural projects or collaborative works. In addition, the stipulation that projects be “new” in their entirety has been removed: Funding is designed to support projects. Funding is not available for regular operating costs or existing deficits.
*NEW* The CKCA may consider funding the same type of project again in subsequent years, but this does not guarantee funding for the subsequent year. Applicants must apply again the subsequent year and compete for funding through the regular adjudication process.
Another significant change is as follows:
For 2018-19, the focus of CKCA managed grant programs has shifted to arts &
culture support. Heritage organizations that were previously supported
through CKCA programming can now access new programs at the Trust.
Built Heritage Grants and Heritage, Museum and Archive Grants support the
preservation of built heritage assets and the varied work of heritage
organizations. There is also a dedicated heritage planner from Heritage BC
available to work with heritage organizations in the Basin. You can learn
more about these programs at <https://ourtrust.org/heritage/>
ourtrust.org/heritage. CKCA staff cannot assist with inquiries about the
Trust heritage programs.
Because the Trust is providing heritage support through other channels, and
the CKCA granting budget remains the same, there is actually increased
funding overall in support of arts and cultural projects this year.
I also want to remind you that the Trust is currently accepting applications
for Arts and Culture Venue Grants:
Deadline: February 1, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. MT
Please read through the material on the website and contact the CKCA office
if you have any further questions.
