Youth arts scholarship
Are you a young, emerging artist looking for encouragement and financial support?
Port Moody Arts Centre is taking applications for the 2013 Kwi Am Choi Scholarship to enable young artists to exhibit and promote their work at the arts centre. Application deadline is Sept. 28.
The scholarship is the result of a donation from the family of artist Kwi Am Choi to the Port Moody Arts Centre Society (PMACS) and a partnership between PMACS and the Port Moody Foundation; together they set up the annual Kwi Am Choi Scholarship Fund. Its objectives are to expand the experiences of student artists and to enable these artists to better promote their work. The amount of the scholarship for 2013 will be approximately $500.
Young artists — ages 15 to 30 years — can find the scholarship criteria by going to www.portmoodyarts.ca and clicking on Kwi Am Choi Scholarship 2013. Only solo artists may apply for this award. The successful applicant will be notified in October.
In consultation with PMACS, the money may be used to set up an art exhibition, including framing, gallery fees, reception and advertising costs, etc.
