Does DWAC have Charitable Status? For what can I get a receipt?
The Durham West Arts Centre received Charitable Status in November of 2004. We’re not allowed to issue charitable receipts for regular memberships. However, any amount of money donated above the $25 membership qualifies for a charitable receipt. We have also had furniture and picture frames donated and we were able to provide charitable receipts for their appraised value.
Do you hold any classes or seminars for artists?
We don’t run any classes as our facilities are too small. We will refer interested members of the public to those classes we know about. If youd like to be on our recommended list for classes, you should contact April Polak. We do hold seminars. January 28, 2005 was our first workshop to assist artists with business practices and self-promotion. Workshop leaders are from Visual Arts Ontario. Check our website often or just sign up for our eMail list for the latest details.
Who are some of your partners and corporate supporters?
We have five partners for the Trillium Collaborative: PineRidge Arts Council, City of Pickering,
