The Powell River Arts Council provides grants and grants-in-kind for the use of civic properties under a service agreement with the City of Powell River. The total amount of funds available is determined by City Council on an annual basis. The City of Powell River is currently reviewing its arts funding, grants-in-aid and cultural organization funding policies which may result in revision to grant eligibility criteria and procedures.
The Arts Council is also reviewing its own application guidelines to streamline the process for applicants and to encourage more individuals, groups and societies to apply for the remaining funds available in Fall 2016.
Information about the current grant application process, guidelines and recipients can be found on the Powell River Council for Arts, Culture and Heritage website. For enquiries, please contact Nina Mussellam, President at firstname.lastname@example.org.
