MP Rudd Announces Canada Arts Presentation Funding in Campbellford

In Community

Kim Rudd, Member of Parliament for Northumberland—Peterborough South and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Natural Resources, today announced that the Westben Arts Festival Theatre in Campbellford will receive $100,000 through the Canada Arts Presentation Fund. This fund is administered through the Ministry of Canadian Heritage, and will provide support for Westben’s “Concerts at the Barn.”
“Westben is one of the finest examples of community theatre in this province, with world-class performances taking place here every year,” said Rudd. “Westben remains a thriving cultural hub, and this funding today will help advance their programs.”
The Canada Arts Presentation Fund (CAPF) provides financial assistance to organizations that professionally present arts festivals or performing arts series, and organizations that offer support to arts presenters.
Through the CAPF, Canadians have access to a variety of professional artistic experiences in their communities. Each year, the CAPF supports approximately 600 professional arts festivals and performing arts series, as well as other activities related to art presentation, in more than 250 cities or communities across Canada.
