The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Kyle Smylie

The Drumheller Her­itage, Arts, and Cul­ture Steer­ing Com­mit­tee is invit­ing lo­cal artists to ap­ply for a new grant to help fund their work or events.

The newly es­tab­lished Arts and Cul­ture Fund will al­low artists to ap­ply for up to $1,000.

“The com­mit­tee is keen to get funds into the com­mu­nity, which we hope will cre­ate more op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­joy arts and cul­ture,” said town man­ager of re­cre­ation, arts, and cul­ture Darren Goldthorpe.

Cur­rently the fund stands at $5,000 to­tal. If there are in­di­vid­u­als who would like to do­nate money to the fund to in­crease its cof­fers, the town is able to of­fer do­na­tion re­ceipts for amounts over $20.

The ap­pli­ca­tion form is avail­able from Judy Quintin-Arvid­son at j.arvid­son@di­nosaur­val­ley.com. The dead­line to ap­ply is Au­gust 15 at 5 p.m.

The Her­itage, Arts, and Cul­ture Steer­ing Com­mit­tee is made up of elected of­fi­cials, mem­bers of the town ad­min­is­tra­tion team, and vol­un­teers from the pub­lic.
