PRESS RELEASE: The Kamloops Arts Council voted one of the top 7 Arts Organizations in CANADA!

Kamloops BC ~ The Kamloops Arts Council is excited to announce that we have been voted one of the top 7 Arts Organizations in Canada! We will receive $1000 in Arts Supplies from Opus Arts Supplies for our Crossing Bridges Outreach Program.

The Crossing Bridges Outreach program is an interactive multidisciplinary collaboration among the arts community and social service agencies delivers high-quality arts workshops at no cost to children, youth, families and adults in the Kamloops area. Artists work alongside staff at local social service agencies to deliver visual arts workshops in a variety of mediums – including painting, photo-transfer, drawing, collage, mirror-etching, woodworking, fibre art and even painting of skateboard decks. Workshops may vary widely in topic, dependent on the needs, ages, and situations of participants at each centre. This year we are working on offering hybrid workshops. Some are safely done in person and we are in the process of having digital workshops available to those in the program.

Crossing Bridges helps participants express realities, fears, hopes and dreams, providing them with the chance to connect with others, build self-esteem and share their voice with the community. Further, the arts workshops keep individuals returning to the agencies that can link them up to help when they need it.

Thank you to everyone who voted and Congratulations to all Arts Organizations who were nominated!
