Because of You We Can:
- Provide free creative opportunities for our community through the Arts Matter Program. Hands on and online participatory events that ignite the creative spark for people of all ages.
- Continue to support our community and artists through the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Provide creative opportunities for marginalized and vulnerable community members in partnership with social service providers.
- Partner with artists, galleries, and local businesses on festivals, art walks, and other collaborative community events.
- Partner with other arts organizations and groups who are not able to fundraise or apply for grants due to their capacity.
- Offer $1500 in High School Bursaries. We provide bursaries to Penticton and Princess Margaret High School students each year.
Together, we are reducing barriers to art-making and creativity while building a vibrant, flourishing, and sustainable artistic community for all.
