Community Arts Projects in Halifax, NS

4Cs Foundation was pleased to provide a SEED grant of $3000.00 to the Craig Gallery at Alderney Landing to kick-start it's Art Cart portable art studio project to give young people a chance to explore art in the Alderney Landing market space. “It’s an opportunity to have fun and to create a working art studio for our community to enjoy,” says Lee Cripps, curator of the gallery.

There is currently a GoFundMe page to help the gallery raise the additional funds.


The 4Cs Foundation SEED grants fund the development of new ideas and innovative approaches in community arts.
The grants support projects that:

  • come up with new or better ways of doing things (more efficiently or effectively) leading to greater impact.
  • allow an organization to learn as a result of testing ideas or concepts that have not been tried before.
  • respond to emerging issues in a community.
  • explore the feasibility of ideas or approaches that are new or unproven.
  • build connections between children, individuals, groups or organizations.
