Artists Revitalize Pianos in Lloydminster

on .

In preparation for their annual Fall Harvest Festival the City of Lloydminster and Streetscapes partnered to have a unique cultural opportunity. The City held accepted votes over Facebook to nominate two local artists to “revitalize” two pianos that had been donated which will be moved throughout downtown Lloydminster during the year. After the voting process was complete the artists selected were Alicia MacDonald and Karlie King. They have since completed their work which was unveiled on October 3 at 6:00 during the Fall Festivals evening program. To have a closer look at their work click here.

Grant Writing Workshops

on .

Bonnie Mills Midgley, Rivers West District Community Development Coordinator, travelled across the District with Marion Donnelly, Facilitator (pictured MarionDonnellybelow), to hold 3 Grant Writing Workshops in Borden, Pierceland and Lloydminster. The workshops covered how to make grant proposals more attractive to funding agencies while gaining knowledge about the grant writing process. Twenty nine people participated in the workshops which were well received by all. Reviews included the workshop to be “very informative” and that the “Presenter is well informed regarding the topic which increased the interest in the presentation”.

Marian Donnelly has been writing successful grant applications for over 30 years. During her tenure as the Executive Director of SaskMusic, she increased their annual operating budget from under $100,000 to over $500,000. As the General Manager of Globe Theatre, she generated over $1.2 million in capital grant funding for their renovation in 2004-2005. As the founder and CEO of Regina’s Creative City Centre, she writes funding applications that total over $100,000 every year. She knows how to look under every rock for potential funding opportunities, and believes in developing long term relationships with all of her funding partners.
