Nine Winnipeg Arts Groups were given Federal government funding Wednesday, said Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages Shelley Glover.
Among those receiving support include The Winnipeg Folk Festival, The Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, KidsFest, the West End Cultural Centre and the Centre culturel franco-manitobain.
“As a not-for-profit organization, the Winnipeg Folk Festival greatly values its ongoing partnership with the Government of Canada,” said Lynne Skromeda, Executive Director of the Winnipeg Folk Festival.
“Music is such a positive and powerful force in our community. This funding allows us to continue to bring music to the lives of so many people in Winnipeg through our summer festival and year-round programs. We are incredibly grateful for this support.”
