The Princeton Arts Council is thankful to have received a $14,000 grant from the B.C. Community Arts Council (division of the BC Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development) through the provincial funding provided to support arts in the 2013-14 fiscal year.
Three components are required for successful applicants: funds matched to local government support, a formula based on community size and isolation and an achievement award based on success in programming for arts and cultural events in the community.
The Princeton Cultural Plan, Spirit Festival and the Tree of Life mosaic mural were the projects completed that earned the local Arts Council permission to apply for annual operating funds through the grant.
This funding enables the Princeton Arts Council to sustain the ongoing activities within the community including The Crimson Tine Players, Concert Series and the Sunflower Gallery.
