Community non-profit groups can apply for up to $10,000 to help offset costs
“Alberta Culture Days is a great way to celebrate the talent, community spirit and cultures that make Alberta so special,” said Minister of Culture Ron Orr. “I encourage community groups to apply for a grant and become a part of the month-long celebration.”
