BV Art Gallery Pop-up Tent

November 9, 2015

Final Report to the Bulkley Valley Community Foundation

"The gallery applied for funds to purchase a pop-up event tent to allow the summer art camps and free Saturday drop in art activities for children to take place outside and for use when the Gallery provides free art activities for the public during the Main Street Festival and the Town's Canada Day celebrations. We are delighted with the tent – due to production difficulties it arrived later than scheduled so we were not able to use it this past summer as planned, but we greatly look forward to putting it to use.

We greatly appreciate the funds awarded to us by the BV Community Foundation and were pleased to acknowledge your support with your logo on the side of the tent, as well as on our Facebook page and on our website.

Thank you for your support."
