Arts Council gets $4.500 grant

The Oceanside Community Arts Council has received a $4,500 Community Gaming Grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

“Because the arts nurture creativity, it is important for youth to gain exposure to multiple forms of creativity,” said Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon in a news release.

“Oceanside Community Arts Council is an ideal recipient for this funding.”

Across B.C., 141 recipients will share $2,663,704 in the latest round of grants from provincial gaming revenue.

Recipients in this round of funding offer programs in arts and culture, human and social services, PACs and sport.
