*Thanks to all the parents for getting the ski forms and information in so quick.

*Strong Start families are welcome to join us for our Take Me Outside Day. We will be outside from 11-1 with lunch outside and games,then inside for a hot drink. I am not sure if our skis would fit too small feet but can bring your own.

*Please remember to send an old shirt for our Reaction Science unit. We will most likely do the experiments on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons.

*We started our Reading Challenge on Thursday. Even though we are reading at school, please read with your child at home and ask some questions about what he or she are reading. These are the questions we are asking students:

1. Who are the characters in the book?
2. What is the problem that needs to be solved?
3. How does the book end?

Have an awesome week everyone!

Arts And Culture funding: NEW guidelines for 2018

 

 I would like to draw your attention to some changes in the current
year funding, and a new program:

Arts Evolution, for arts and cultural
organizations which present or create work, curatorial projects, want to undertake new arts and cultural projects or collaborative works.  In addition, the stipulation that projects be “new” in their entirety has been removed: Funding is designed to support projects. Funding is not available for regular operating costs or existing deficits.

*NEW* The CKCA may consider funding the same type of project again in subsequent years, but this does not guarantee funding for the subsequent year. Applicants must apply again the subsequent year and compete for funding through the regular adjudication process.
 
Another significant change is as follows:

For 2018-19, the focus of CKCA managed grant programs has shifted to arts &
culture support. Heritage organizations that were previously supported
through CKCA programming can now access new programs at the Trust.

Built Heritage Grants and Heritage, Museum and Archive Grants support the
preservation of built heritage assets and the varied work of heritage
organizations. There is also a dedicated heritage planner from Heritage BC
available to work with heritage organizations in the Basin. You can learn
more about these programs at  <https://ourtrust.org/heritage/>
ourtrust.org/heritage. CKCA staff cannot assist with inquiries about the
Trust heritage programs.

Because the Trust is providing heritage support through other channels, and
the CKCA granting budget remains the same, there is actually increased
funding overall in support of arts and cultural projects this year.

I also want to remind you that the Trust is currently accepting applications
for Arts and Culture Venue Grants:

Deadline: February 1, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. MT

Please read through the material on the website and contact the CKCA office
if you have any further questions.

CKCA funding 2018


ARTS AND CULTURE GRANTS NOW AVAILABLE

CKCA and the Trust announce 2018-19 programs

Columbia Basin – Artists in all disciplines-as well as arts and culture
organizations-are invited to apply for funding through the Columbia Kootenay
Cultural Alliance (CKCA), which delivers the Arts and Culture Program on behalf of Columbia Basin Trust.

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
expanded investment in arts and culture through the CKCA will have a
significant impact for artists and organizations in the Basin.”

For 2018-19, CKCA is receiving $750,000 from the Trust to directly support
arts and culture projects. Funding is available for individuals and groups
through the following programs: community arts councils; minor capital arts
projects; touring; arts and cultural mentoring / master classes;
organizational development; major project arts; artists in education; and a
new arts presenting and creation program for organizations. Applications are
adjudicated once a year by local arts councils and the CKCA Steering
Committee. Funding also supports the development of a regional arts and
cultural publication and the popular Columbia Basin Culture Tour, which will
occur in August 2018.

“We know the celebration of arts and culture is important to Basin residents
and contributes to our quality of life,” said Michelle d’Entremont, Manager,
Grants and Programs, Columbia Basin Trust. “CKCA programming offers valuable support and expertise in the arts and culture sector that enriches our
communities and supports the successful development of artists.”

Heritage organizations that were previously supported through CKCA
programming can now access new programs at the Trust. Built Heritage Grants and Heritage, Museum and Archive Grants support the preservation of built heritage assets and the varied work of heritage organizations. There is also a dedicated heritage planner from Heritage BC available to work with
heritage organizations in the Basin. You can learn more about these programs
at  <https://ourtrust.org/heritage/> ourtrust.org/heritage.

Visit  <http://www.basinculture.com> www.basinculture.com, for more
information about programs and application procedures. Please note,
applications will now be submitted online for most programs. Call CKCA at
250.505.5505 or 1.877.505.7355 for any additional questions.

CKCA applications must be received by March 2 or March 16, 2018, depending on the program.

Over the next three years, the Trust is expanding its support for arts,
culture and heritage with $11.6 million. Learn more at
