Festival Place Cultural Arts Foundation

Festival Place Cultural Arts Foundation is the heart of art support in Strathcona County! Our members have their collective fingers on the pulse of art support from fundraising through fun events such as the Black & White, the Festival of Trees, and In the Spirit to providing funding for young performing and visual artists via grants and scholarships.

Arts Funding

The FPCAF continues to expand its fundraising activities to support innovative children’s and young adult programming through advocacy, grants and scholarships.

Our Objectives:

  • Strengthen and promote visual and performing arts through the development of community awareness
  • Provide visual and performing artists with opportunities to develop and showcase their talent
  • Support and invest in visual and performing artists as well as the youth of Strathcona County with grants, advocacy and scholarships
