HEADS-UP: START PLANNING FOR YOUR NEXT GRANT!
As an artist or arts and culture organization, you may have big dreams. So how do you get the funding to make them come true?
Each year, the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA)—funded by Columbia Basin Trust and managed by the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council—provides grants to arts and culture projects throughout the Columbia Basin.
Join us at the Rural Artist Support Weekend
The CKCA application period is traditionally open from early winter to spring. However, it’s never too early to start developing your ideas.
To start, we recommend attending one of our grant-writing workshops. At these, you’ll learn all about the different granting streams available and how to write a solid application. We run a whole series of these workshops, so as many people as possible can find one to fit their schedule.
At this point, we invite you to attend our first grant-writing workshop, which is taking place during the Rural Artist Support Weekend, hosted by the Nelson and District Arts Council (NDAC) in December 2023. For details on the weekend’s events when they become available, follow NDAC on Instagram or Facebook.
