Workshop and theme
We encourage you to plan your activities and booth décor around our rivers to rainbows theme. You are welcome to have fun with your own dress on the day!
You must produce an arts-related activity that fits the River to Rainbows theme and is eco-friendly at your booth from 10-4 pm (unless you run out of supplies – no early pack-ups). The activity must be provided free of charge for the children of our community.
KAC will not be supplying tents, tables or table coverings. You must provide your own and be decorated to go with the theme.
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 30 days of the event.
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 email@example.com 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.
Keep your receipts and bring them in an envelope with your name and contact information so we can pay you back. No receipt – no reimbursement. Sales 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for approval before spending.
Note: Please read the Covid Response Section below regarding reimbursements.
Covid-19 Response –
The Kamloops Arts Council cannot guarantee that all activities, performances, etc., will be possible under future Covid-19 regulations. In the case that further restrictions are needed due to Covid-19 regulations, you must have a backup plan for your workshop/activity.
Please note, as prepared and preventative as we try to be, there remains the possibility that the Children’s Arts Festival may be cancelled under Public Health Orders. This is the worst-case scenario but is entirely possible. In the case of a cancellation, honorariums will not be given. Reimbursements can be requested up to a maximum of $150.00. All payments will be received after the completion of the Children’s Arts Festival.
Criminal Record Check
For Children’s Arts Festival, you are required to complete a vulnerable sector criminal record check as we will be working with children. As you are not employed by the KAC, you will complete a volunteer criminal record check and payment is not required. You will need the access code listed below to identify that you are involved with the Kamloops Arts Council. Alternatively, if you have already completed the online criminal record check, you can give permission to share the results with us.
