Westminster Savings Funds Family Days Program at Evergreen Cultural Centre

Program is designed to build appreciation of the arts.

New Westminster, B.C., October 7, 2015 - The Evergreen Cultural Centre is pleased to announce it has received a $3,600 grant from Westminster Savings to support the Art Gallery at Evergreen's (AGE) monthly Westminster Savings Family Days program.

The program provides free access to gallery exhibitions and brings families together with an informative and entertaining drop-in program of hand-on activities to build their appreciation of the arts.

The first Westminster Savings Family Days of the 2015/2016 season will be held on Saturday, October 10, 2015. The drop-in event runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For the activity, My Town, Our Town, families will get inspired by the buildings that populate renowned Canadian cartoonist, Seth's exhibition, Dominion to create a building of their own. What will your family's building look like? What will happen in your family's building? What will your family's building say about your real or imagined city?

"We are very excited to once again welcome Westminster Savings as a partner for another exciting year of Westminster Savings Family Days program of activities," says Gregory Elgstrand, Curator, Art Gallery at Evergreen. "With this continued support, we are able to present families in the communities that we serve with the opportunity to share rewarding, engaging and, most of all, fun experiences of the exceptional exhibitions at the AGE."

"Westminster Savings is committed to helping families in our local communities achieve better balance by increasing access to the arts, so we are very pleased to be partnering with the Evergreen Cultural Centre on the Family Days program," says Gavin Toy, President and CEO Westminster Savings. "This program will help bring the arts alive for families in an educational and fun way."
