ARTIST FACILITATOR COMMITMENT

Artist Facilitators are given honorariums for their work under the KAC. If you are looking to advertise your business and donate your time with activities, please see the Community Artist Booth Application HERE. 
  • You must be an active Kamloops Arts Council member; this is for insurance purposes and your membership is good for 1 year.

We sincerely hope that you will appreciate the value of this opportunity, and we thank you for your interest.

Please note, that applications will go through a selection process. The organizations/businesses chosen are dependent upon the number of submissions received in addition to the variety and quality of activities planned.

You must produce an arts-related activity that fits the Rivers to Rainbows theme and is eco friendly at your booth from 10am-4pm. The activity must be provided free of charge for the children of our community. The KAC may have a large tent with some activities as well as some 10×10 tents. We will have a limited supply of tents, tables and table coverings. If you are able to bring your own, please do so. Your table and tent must be decorated to go with the theme. 

Payment
The agreed-upon amount for your services in your booth for Saturday is $150.00 ($75 each if shared). Cheques may be picked up at the Old Courthouse or mailed to you within 6 weeks of the event. We will contact you with delays.

Supplies and Equipment
Purchased supplies will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $150.00. If you require more than that amount, please email Marta at events@kamloopsarts.ca for approval before spending. If you know of a business or individual who may want to sponsor your workshop or donate supplies, please let us know! We can issue charitable tax receipts and give them a shout-out through our channels as a supporter of the event. Please bring your own technical equipment if possible as our equipment supply is limited.

Reimbursement
Keep your original receipts and bring them in an envelope with your name and contact information so we can pay you back. No receipt – no reimbursement. Sale receipts must be originals from the retailer – handwritten receipts will NOT be accepted. Note: Purchased supplies will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $150.00. If you require more than that amount, please email Marta at events@kamloopsarts.ca for approval before spending.
