About the Pride Project Arts and Awareness Festival:
This October 18-24th will be Salmon Arm Pride Projects’ Second Annual Arts and Awareness Festival! It will be happening in real life all over salmon arm, and online on YouTube and Instagram featuring “breaking the binary” art exhibition at the art gallery, the 2nd annual pride window display celebration with DSA, pride palace in the old seniors centre across from the gallery (where the pop up shop will be), a play reading at Shuswap Theatre, digital movie festival at the Salmar classic, makeover day at MisMack cosmetics, Pride Pumpkin Party Drag Night with Harpur Farm, Shuswap Pride Trail Guide with Shuswap Trail Alliance, here comes the Pride wedding packages, and SO MUCH MORE!
The Pride Project is still $15,000 away from their fundraising goals this year to break even for the festival, and would love to be able to save a nest egg to support next year’s events. Individuals and businesses can contact our program manager Astrid Varnes to speak about opportunities, or Claire Askew, their new arts centre fundraiser!
Funds go towards artist and content producer fees, marketing, the production of many original artworks (including a short film), and are handled through the Shuswap District Arts Council, a registered non profit.
