Shipyard Kitchen Party, winner of Robert G. Kemp Arts Award
The Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts is proud to announce the 26th recipient of the Robert G. Kemp Arts Award for 2018, Shipyard Kitchen Party and their production 100 Years from Now.
This exciting project tells Canadian stories from a uniquely Georgian Bay perspective through the visual, musical and dramatic arts. Audiences will have an opportunity to see 100 Years from Now when it returns to the Simcoe Street Theatre in Collingwood, from Nov. 9-11.
The $5,000 award will allow the group to expand their audiences through audio recording, filming and lesson plans for educators.
The award was created in 1989 through a trust fund administered by the BMFA with the intent to provide encouragement and/or recognition to an individual or group residing in the South Georgian Bay area.
Each applicant submits a project proposal that will benefit the community.
A formal presentation will be made at the BMFA Annual General Meeting later in the fall.
