$420,000 in grants approved for Surrey arts, cultural and community groups

SURREY City Council has approved more than $420,000 in grants that will benefit the City’s arts, cultural and community organizations. The City of Surrey’s Cultural Grants Program has been in place since 2012 to support a wide range of arts and cultural activity, including music, dance, theatre, heritage, cultural celebrations and community outreach.

“As we work our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to not lose sight of the important role that arts and culture play in our lives,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum. “That’s why City Council has reaffirmed our commitment of our support of Surrey’s arts, cultural and community organizations. This year the Cultural Grants Program will benefit 74 organizations in our city and I encourage you to, safely, find ways to support Surrey’s talented and vibrant arts and cultural sector.”

The 2021 Cultural Grants range from $1,500 to $15,000. The full list of this year’s grant’s recipients can be viewed here.
