The Summerland Community Arts Council has received provincial assistance to help cope with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sonja Waller, administrator of the arts organization, said the B.C. Arts Council recently presented the organization with its Arts and Culture Resilience Supplement.
Waller said the $5,000 support is needed as the organization works to remain in operation.
“There are so many unexpected expenses now,” she said.
The organization is looking for ways to continue to connect with the community and to deliver its programs in new ways, she added.
“We sincerely appreciate this assistance and it will help the Summerland Community Arts Council move programming to a digital platform while we continue to work behind the scenes and support artists and artisans in our community,” she said.
