05 Sep 2018 Supporting the Culture & Arts in Steinbach
 |  Category: Uncategorized

At the September 4th council meeting council approved a $65,000 matching grant to Steinbach Arts Council.  The Arts Council received a $65,000 grant from Federated Co-op which was awarded to the Arts Council through a application process.  Steinbach Arts Council was successful because of the commitment shown through the plan presented.

The building the Arts Council rents from the City of Steinbach has long needed repairs and this will help in creating a more positive learning environment for the roughly 1,000 people who go through the centre each week.  The building itself is an old structure built in 1936 as Steinbach’s first high school.  It has since become many things a junior high school, the site of the first Library for Steinbach, meeting place for community groups like AAA, 55 plus centre and the Arts Centre for roughly the last 15 years.

I fully support this as it covered the basic requirements of our granting policy.  The grant is supported in the request by private dollars as well as the grant from Federated Co-op.  The Arts Council in Steinbach has always been very active in fundraising for there needs and again demonstrates why we continue to have one of the best Arts & Culture programs in Manitoba.
