TRUST EXPANDS SUPPORT FOR ARTS, CULTURE AND HERITAGE

$11.6 million in programs and support over three years

(Columbia Basin) – Arts, culture and heritage are a valued part of the tapestry of the Columbia Basin region that enriches our communities and the lives of residents. Columbia Basin Trust is expanding its support for arts, culture and heritage with $11.6 million over three years.

“Residents told us that the history and culture of the Basin needs to be celebrated through vibrant arts, culture and heritage sectors; that’s why we made it one of our 13 strategic priorities,” said Wayne Lundeberg, Columbia Basin Trust. “We’re focusing on enhancing the impact of arts and culture, supporting artists, preserving heritage assets and strengthening the capacity of organizations.”

Specific programs supporting arts, culture and heritage include:

The Trust has a longstanding partnership with CKCA for the delivery of arts and culture programming, as well as representing the interests of the arts and culture community in the region.

“Over the past 20 years, we’ve seen firsthand the positive impact funding has on supporting arts and culture, in particular the many emerging artists in this region who have thrived,” said Laura White, CKCA Chair. “The Trust’s investment in arts, culture and heritage will make a difference for artists and organizations, while also enhancing exhibition and performance spaces.”
