Grants for arts groups

Surrey Arts Centre, a Surrey-based Cantonese opera company and a White Rock student were recipients of the latest round of BC Arts Council funding, announced Tuesday.

Surrey Arts Centre will receive $5,000 from the arts council’s community presenters assistance program to produce a special musical event, while the Vancouver Cantonese Opera company will receive $4,000 for its production of the opera Imperishable Love, scheduled for next spring.

Sonya Lee of White Rock, a visual artist in her first year at Emily Carr College of Art and Design, will receive an individual junior scholarship of $2,000 toward her studies.

BC Arts Council grants are awarded each year to a variety of arts and culture organizations, and individual artists, to help strengthen and expand a wide range of disciplines, including music, visual arts, literature, theatre and dance.

Primary agency for supporting arts and culture programs in B.C., the BC Arts Council’s funding from the provincial budget now stands at $13.95 million annually.
