CIMAS is celebrating Operation Assistance Grant!
General News · 28th March 2016
The Cortes Museum & Archives Society (CIMAS) is pleased to announce that we have received a grant provided by the BC Arts Council and the BC Government.

This funding will enable CIMAS to expand our Community Outreach Program and provide curatorial training to volunteers interested in developing and creating future exhibits.

One of the goals of the CIMAS Board is to hire a part-time programmer to augment & support the work of our part-time and volunteer staff and develop new community engagement activities for all ages. In April, CIMAS will post the job description and invite interested individuals to submit resumes.

In September, CIMAS will be looking for committed volunteers to participate in a series of workshops throughout the winter designed to provide the skills necessary to curate and create exhibits.

Participants will receive instruction with practicums under the direction of professional curators, including Cortes resident Judith Williams, UBC Professor Emeritus, artist and author. Details about this exciting learning opportunity will be announced at the end of August.

CIMAS wishes to thank the BC Arts Council and the BC Government for this generous grant which provides much-needed support to our programs.
