Web Lead

The Ingham Arts and Culture Centre has made it through to the semifinal round of voting in the annual Aviva Community fund competition, which sees Canadian ideas brought to life with a share of the $1 million fund.

The Friends of the Ingham Arts and Culture Centre Society have applied for a medium ($50,000-100,000) budget to help renovate the centre, which may include a teen centre, a multimedia area for community radio, video, new media and digital artistry, and a performance area for dance, community theater and band.

“There is no one place in the valley where all these groups can come together and work together for the benefit of the community,” says the society’s overview. “United by this common hub, these groups will develop a deeper sense of co-operation, pride, vision and strength that builds a greater community for all its residents.”

Voting begins at www.avivacommunityfund.org on Dec. 2.
