Applications are open until March 15 for artists and performers wanting legacy funds from the now-defunct Port Coquitlam Theatre Society.

The Port Coquitlam Community Foundation, which distributes the grants and bursaries on behalf of the society, recently expanded its criteria for the Theatre Society Legacy Fund (TSLF) Performing Arts Grant and the Performing Arts Bursary to include all forms of the arts.

These are listed as: drawing, painting, sculpting, photography, performance art, dance, music, poetry, prose, theatre and culinary arts.

The TSLF awards grants up to $10,000 for arts projects and programs in the Tri-Cities while there are two bursaries — for $2,000 each — given to Tri-City high school graduates pursuing a post-secondary arts education anywhere in the world.

Last year, Place des Arts received $6,500 from the TSLF for its summer teen theatre troupe.
