Thank You to the CRD
The 8th Annual Integrate Arts Festival is fast approaching and final preparations are in full tilt. While we're coordinating final transportation details, gathering last minute supplies and firing up Facebook and Twitter to spread the word, we'd like to take a step back, deep breath, and acknowledge those that helped us get to this point.
There's a long list of people we are grateful for including volunteers, artists, galleries, spaces, local businesses and organizations, but we'd like to dedicate this post to our major funding provider: The CRD Arts Development Service. Our thanks goes out to the Arts Committee and The Arts Advisory Council for choosing to support Integrate Arts Festival - 2 years running. We'd also like to acknowledge the 8 municipalities in the Capital Region: Victoria, Saanich, Oak Bay, Esquimalt, View Royal, Metchosin, Highlands and Sidney who are funding partners to the Arts Development Service and recognize the benefits that the arts bring to quality of life, economy, and community.
Our work and the success of Integrate Arts Festival relies on our supporters and the CRD project grant we received this year is a major contributing factor towards realizing our goals. With the help of the CRD Arts Development Service we know the 8th Annual Integrate Arts Festival will be bigger & better than ever and continue to grow in years to come.
The CRD Arts Development Service has three funding programs including Operating grants, Project grants, and IDEA (innovate, develop, experiment, access) grants that support arts initiatives in non-arts mandated organizations.
