Alert Bay’s U’Mista Cultural Society was awarded $25,500 from the B.C. Arts Council grant adjudications for Capacity & Sustainability, performing and studio arts. These monetary awards will enhance arts and culture in 57 B.C. communities and are the result of applications examined through the B.C. Arts Council’s independent peer-review process between July 1 and Sept. 30, 2015. “it is immensely rewarding to see the creative excellence of our province’s artistic community be nurtured and celebrated through the important work carried out through the BC Arts Council,” BC Arts Council chair, Merla Beckerman, said, adding that, “thanks to funding from the Government of British Columbia and a respected peer review process provided by our juries, the council supports more than 1,300 individual artists and arts organizations throughout the province each year.”
