The re­gion’s pri­mary and se­condary school chil­dren will have greater ac­cess to the arts thanks to new Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion fund­ing for Hast­ings City Art Gallery’s stu­dent art pro­grammes. Hast­ings Dis­trict Coun­cil’s gallery di­rec­tor Toni MacK­in­non said it was the first time the gallery had ap­plied to the min­istry’s Learn­ing Ex­pe­ri­ences Out­side The Class­room con­testable fund, from which it would re­ceive $42,000 a year for the next three years. The money would be used to grow the schools’ pro­gramme the gallery had run for the past three years.
