Centre awarded second arts grant of $12,500

The arts centre here has announced receipt of a second Ontario Arts Council grant to help assist with ongoing operating costs and needs.

The first grant for $12,500 was received last fall and the OAC indicated that with  budgetary restrictions on new ap­plicants for a grant for visual and media arts at artist-run centres, that would be the extent of the aid. However, a supplementary grant of $12,500 was awarded last week.

“I was utterly blown away when we were awarded the complete make-up of our initial request of $25,000,” centre general manager Arlene Saunders said. For information visit eloracentreforthearts.ca.
