Local arts council seeks award applicants

The Nanaimo Arts Council is currently accepting applications for its Achievement Award program, which provides financial aid for tuition, supplies and equipment to individuals studying arts at colleges, universities and educational workshops.

Applications must be submitted by March 30. All selections are made on the basis of talent, achievements, potential, long range goals and overall benefit to the community.

Last year the arts council awarded a total of $4,000 to students for studies in graphic design, musical theatre, dance, vocal jazz and theatre. Over the past 16 years the program has granted more than $51,000 to students throughout the Nanaimo area.

Application forms are available online or the Nanaimo Arts Council gallery in Nanaimo North Town Centre.

For more information, please contact the Nanaimo Arts Council at 250-729-3947, or e-mail admin@nanaimoartscouncil.ca.
