The Shuswap Performing Arts Centre is in need of 1,500 votes to advance to the semifinalist round in the Aviva Community Fund.
The fund is about making a difference helping passionate people make positive changes in their communities. The Shuswap Society for the Arts & Culture Society believes Salmon Arm deserves a performing arts centre and is working towards achieving that dream.
They have entered the idea into the Aviva Community Fund with the goal of winning a grant towards completing a well-researched business plan that would include an ecomonic impact study, as well as capital and operating plans – all required to secure the land required for the project.
Determined by votes, the top 40 ideas from the semifinal round advance to the final judging round, with each finalist receiving $5,000.
The next round of voting began Nov. 10 and runs to Nov. 24. Vote for the performing arts centre every day by going to www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf21051.
