$29k for Coffs culture

EIGHTEEN cultural groups shared $29,685 in the 2010-2011 Coffs Harbour City Council arts and cultural small grants development program.

Among those receiving funding were two new choirs, the Coffs Harbour Mental Health Choir established by New Horizon Enterprises, a group of mental health services and Back in the Rhythm Youth Choir, established by New Career Connections.

Other recipients this year were the Coffs Harbour Racing Club, which received a grant towards the cost of organising and hosting Coffs Harbour’s Carols by Candlelight on December 18 and John Paul College P&C, which received funding for youth art creation workshops. The grants were presented to group representatives on Tuesday.
