The 100 Mile and District Arts Council, serving the South Cariboo, was awarded $3,647 in BC Arts Council grants, Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett announced on April 24.

This funding will be used by the arts council to assist in its operating activities for the upcoming fiscal year.

“I am very pleased to see this funding from our government and the BC Arts Council help keep the South Cariboo arts and culture scene thriving,” Barnett said.

“Our local artists and performers are incredibly talented, and the 100 Mile & District Arts Council does great work serving our community.”

As British Columbia’s lead agency for arts funding and development, the BC Arts Council enlists the expertise of B.C.’s artists to evaluate grant applications through a peer review process independent of government.
