Revelstoke Arts Council seeks city funding for performing arts centre

The Revelstoke Arts Council is asking for $10,000 in funding to support the operation of the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre.

The audience takes in the Banff Mountain Film Festival at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre.

The Revelstoke Arts Council is asking for $10,000 in funding to support the operation of the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre.

The arts council is asking the City of Revelstoke to provide the funding out of the Resort Municipality Infrastructure Fund. The money would go towards the $22,000 paid to the theatre manager each year.

“There is no core funding for this position,” states a staff report by Laurie Donato, the city’s director of parks, recreation & culture. “Wages for this position along with the operation of this facility are dependent on fundraising throughout the year.”

In recent years, funding for the position has come from provincial gaming grants, the Columbia Basin Trust and tourism funding.

The request will be discussed by council on Tuesday, Jan. 12.
