City accepting art grant applications

The city of Vancouver is accepting applications from nonprofit or government organizations focused on culture, arts or heritage.

A total of $100,000 will be allocated to applicants this year. Submissions are due by 3 p.m. Sept. 11. Recipients will be announced in late October.

According to a media release, the city is looking to fund projects that “exemplify the best of the creative community through performances, exhibitions, events and other innovative collaborations for the public’s benefit.”

Vancouver will also hold two workshops to help guide grant applicants through the process. They’ll be held at 4 p.m. July 17 and 6 p.m. July 24 at Vancouver City Hall, 415 W. Sixth St.

“With the adoption of the city’s Culture, Arts, and Heritage Plan in April 2018, city council recognized that arts, cultural and heritage programs enliven and elevate the livability of our community,” Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle said in the media release. “The success of our local artists, performers and historians ensure a vibrant and diverse Vancouver and is integral to the health of our local economy.”
