Metro Vancouver Awards 2018 Regional Culture Grants

Metro Vancouver

BURNABY - Metro Vancouver Awards 2018 Cultural Grants

Metro Vancouver is pleased to announce the award of $120,000 in Regional Project Grants this year to over thirty arts and culture organizations across the region.

Through its annual program, Metro Vancouver helps organizations research and produce new cultural programs, reach new audiences, and cover staffing and administrative needs, up to a maximum of $10,000 per project grant.

“The process is always challenging, and this year was no exception, the calibre of applications was very high,” said Judy Villeneuve, the Chair of the Regional Cultural Committee and Councillor from the City of Surrey. “We encourage Metro Vancouver residents to head out in their municipalities or a neighbouring one to appreciate local theatre and opera, poetry and graphic storytelling that have been supported this year.”

Grant recipients represent the cultural mosaic of the region, showcasing creativity across a broad range of disciplines, providing access for all abilities, supporting new immigrants and funding scholarships for those who need financial assistance.
