A number of Kamloops artists and art organizations have received a share of $4.7 million dollars in funding from the provincial government.
A total of seven individuals and organizations received just under $100,000, including the Kamloops Arts Council, Kamloops Art Gallery, and Western Canada Theatre.
The funding was provided through the B.C. Arts Council to support and enhance local arts and culture.
“It is immensely rewarding to see the creative excellence of our province’s artistic community be nurtured and celebrated through the important work carried out through the BC Arts Council. Thanks to funding from the Government of British Columbia and a respected peer review process provided by our juries, the council supports more than 1,300 individual artists and arts organizations throughout the province each year,” said B.C. Arts Council Chair Merla Beckerman.
Funding was awarded through a peer review process that took place between July 1st and September 30th.
