Place des Arts in Coquitlam scooped $3,500 while the Port Moody Heritage Society, which runs the Port Moody Station Museum, clinched $2,000.

Other recipients included Bard on the Beach Society, Carousel Theatre, the DTES Vancouver Cetnre for the Arts and the Vancouver Opera Association.

“The process is always challenging and this year was no exception: The calibre of applications was very high,” said Surrey Coun. Judy Villeneuve, the chairperson of the regional cultural committee, in a news release. “We encourage Metro Vancouver residents to head out in their municipalities or a neighbouring one to appreciate local theatre and opera, poetry and graphic storytelling that have been supported this year.”
