The Kingston Arts Council is now accepting applications for the 2014 Operating and Project Grant Programs for the City of Kingston Arts Fund (CKAF). The Kingston Arts Council will host two information sessions and all applicants are encouraged to attend.

A reminder that artists will be meeting with MPPs at Queens Park to discuss funding issues around the Ontario Arts Council as well as the arts in general on Wednesday 26 February, 2014. 
That does not preclude YOU from advocating independently. When talking to YOUR MPP, recognize their help in the past and be clear that their continued support is really appreciated. 
Let us all know how those conversations go by tweeting and be sure to include hashtag #ArtsDayQP!
