“The arts and culture sectors are incredibly important to our communities. The CKCA board is grateful for the Trust’s continued support, and is always impressed by the breadth and creativity of the grant applications that are submitted. The Trust’s funding allows artists to grow, and it creates opportunities for the many arts and cultural organizations that apply to celebrate the diversity and individuality of the communities that make up the Basin. We are excited to see what this year’s round of applications will be and look forward to continuing to witness the ongoing positive impacts that this funding creates for the communities.”
