For Arts & Culture
An Expression of Our Community
Welcome to our new site! We are thrilled to be working toward making this a functional space for you to access information and tickets for upcoming events, call for artists, and other news! We appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to update.
The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture was founded in 1998, by a group of artists who recognized a need to promote and grow the arts & culture sector in Rossland. Our goal to ‘enhance lifestyles through creative expression’ is achieved by providing year-round, diverse and accessible arts and culture programming and events.
Support for the RCAC comes from many different areas of the community – our members, volunteers, and sponsors. We are acutely aware that without your support, the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture would not be the force we are today.
Funding Partners and Sponsors
The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture sources the majority of its funding from Provincial, Regional and Municipal sources. The RCAC would like to thank our current funding partners for their support.
Every year the RCAC identifies grants which we are eligible to apply for that can be used to fund our programs. The amount of money these funding partners have to distribute each year is limited and there is often competition for these funds from other non-profit societies.
Over the years the RCAC has developed skills in grant writing, and learned how to strengthen our applications to improve the probability of being awarded funds. One of the ways we do this is by showing that a portion of the budgeted program revenues comes from non-provincial, regional or municipal sources. The RCAC also uses the earned and contributed revenues we generate to help fund our programs. These are seen by our funding partners as a measure of the success of our programming, and the level of support the RCAC receives from our community.
Contributed revenues are raised from local businesses and corporations who show their support for Arts and Culture in Rossland by sponsoring RCAC programs and events. Earned revenues are generated from ticket sales, workshop fees and membership dues.
The RCAC recognizes the importance of finding new ways to raise new sponsorship revenues, and at the same time look for opportunities to acknowledge sponsor’s support. With this in mind the RCAC launched a new and simplified sponsorship and recognition framework in Spring 2022.
Business sponsors are recognized on our website, in our monthly Newsletter, and in our downtown Kiosk. Sponsors also receive a RCAC Sponsor decal to display in the window of their business.
