Cressey Arts Grant a Success

To celebrate Cadence, Cressey’s newest development, we asked grade 11 and 12 students in Richmond to create an original work of art. The art pieces were a representation of the student’s vision of “Living a Healthy Life in Richmond”. We received artwork of various mediums – everything from videos to full-scale murals. We reviewed all the submissions and picked 5 finalists.

Last week we held our Second Annual Cressey Arts Grant Ceremony at the Cadence Presentation Centre in Richmond. The night was a great success; the finalists, their family and friends, along with faculty members were all in attendance to celebrate the unique works of art and find out who would be awarded the grand prize.

Richmond’s Mayor Malcolm Brodie opened the ceremony by saying a few words about the importance of healthy living within a community and what’s next for the thriving City of Richmond. Our Vice-President Jason Turcotte and Executive Vice-President Hani Lammam awarded Noelle Ho with the $3,000 grand prize grant. The other four finalists also received a $500 grant for their exemplary work.

The excitement doesn’t stop there; we are hosting the 2014 Cressey Arts Grant People’s Choice Award on our Facebook page. Visit our page to view all the submissions and vote for your favourite entry.
