$500,000 in grants approved for Surrey arts, cultural and community groups

SURREY City Council on Monday approved nearly $500,000 in grants that will benefit Surrey’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.

“Arts, culture, and heritage are critical for a thriving and vibrant City, particularly during these times,” said Councillor Laurie Guerra, Chair of the Parks, Recreation and Culture Committee. “I am so pleased that our cultural grants program will once again fund so many exciting cultural experiences in Surrey in 2022. I encourage you to get out and safely support all of the programs and events being offered by our talented arts and culture sector.”

The 2022 Cultural Grants range from $1,000 to $25,000. View the full list of this year’s grant’s recipients.  New in 2022, is enhanced operating grant funding, as well as the Surrey Civic Theatres Rental In-Kind Subsidy, which offers a value of up to $2,000 of assistance to non-profit, professional arts and cultural organizations.
