Peterborough, ON – Peterborough Arts Alive Fund has awarded $104,500 in COVID-19 Strategic Recovery & Resilience Grants to 15 local arts organizations. The Peterborough Arts Alive Fund is an Electric City Culture Council (EC3) initiative in partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough (CFGP). The grants were awarded through the CFGP in collaboration with EC3.
Grants awarded range between $2,500 – $10,000 and support projects in artistic creation and development, PPE and public health upgrades, management and staff training/coaching/expert consulting, technology and digital upgrades, marketing and communications development and staffing.
The initial idea came from local arts supporter Deborah Berrill, leading a group of private donors who, along with EC3 and the CFGP, collaborated on the efforts that raised $104,500 for the Peterborough Arts Alive Fund. We would like to thank the Peterborough Performing Arts Recovery Alliance for fundraising support and the City of Peterborough for its generous contribution of $40,000 to the fund.
