The third award, Business in Support of the Arts, recognizes outstanding business leaders and/or businesses/corporations that have made a significant contribution supporting local arts and culture through donations, sponsorships, volunteer services, or the support of an artist.
The nomination forms can be found on the Mayor’s Gala for the Arts website at www.mayorsgalaforthearts.com. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 6, 2017, at 5:00 pm.
For over a decade, the Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops Symphony and Western Canada Theatre have partnered with the City of Kamloops for the Mayor’s Awards for the Arts to celebrate and inspire artists and those who support them within our region. The awards provide an opportunity to recognize the artistic and cultural achievements by artists and residents of the Kamloops and TNRD, to applaud their contributions, cultivate greater visibility and appreciation of the value of the arts, encourage excellence and build relationships within the arts community.
We look forward to your nomination.
