individual and group projects;

minor capital projects;

touring;

arts and heritage mentoring/master classes;

organizational development;

major projects;

artists in education;

major exhibits;

major heritage capital projects; and

heritage projects.

 

 

“This is support for our neighbours, our museums, our local theatre troupes—for the many ways arts, culture and heritage weave through our lives,” said Gary Ockenden, CBT Director of Community Engagement. “We’re proud CBT can strengthen this sector in order to benefit the whole community.”
