Local MPP Laurie Scott is congratulating local organizations who received grants from the Ontario Arts Council. Laurie Carmount, Curator of the Agnes Jamieson Art Gallery explains the five thousand dollars they received went toward an exhibit they wouldn’t have been able to do without it.

Another successful recipient was the Haliburton Highlands Arts Council. Carmount explains they received a grant for just over nine thousand dollars to cover operating costs, which she says is rare.

Carmount says a grant like this is something many arts councils across the province rely on.

She says the Haliburton Highlands Arts Council recently welcomed a new board, who are organizing themselves in the next month to determine what the next year has in store.
