Here at DCCS we’re thrilled to be helping in a new grassroots initiative to provide funding for children and youth to participate in local arts programs.
“With the generous financial support of the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use (CYMHSU) Collaborative Local Action Team and the efforts of some members of this fabulous community of Dawson Creek we are happy to announce the launch of the Dawson Creek Arts Fund! The fund was put in place to help children, youth and young adults access programs in the arts that would otherwise be unavailable to them due to financial barriers. It will function along the same lines as KidSport and Jumpstart and will be administered by the Arts Fund committee. Fund guidelines, application criteria and the application form are attached.” (Angela Reay – Dawson Creek Arts Fund Committee)
You can find the application form here, or in person at the select drop-off locations (Calvin Kruk Centre for the Arts, Dawson Creek Art Gallery, or Northern Lights College.
Many thanks to the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use Action Team for your vision and great initiative in Dawson Creek.
