TNL will received $50,000 from the non-profit crown agency while Gros Morne Music will get $20,000.
The arts council awarded $575,000 to 17 professional arts organizations through the Sustaining Program for Professional Arts Organizations.
This program supports the administrative and production expenditures associated with operating a professional arts organization.
The program operates on a three-year cycle.
Organizations funded in the first year are guaranteed at least 75 per cent of their grant for the next two years, as long as they maintain the same level of activity, and funding for the program does not change.
The program is currently in Year 2 of its granting cycle.
New applicants can apply only in the first year of the cycle; the next call for applicants will be in 2014.
“Each of these arts organizations contributes to the artistic fabric provincewide, developing cultural experiences for those we welcome to our province and Newfoundlanders and Labradorians alike,” said Reg Winsor, executive director of the council.
Applications were evaluated by a committee of artistic peers based on artistic vision, production activity, and administrative management.
The arts council receives an annual contribution of $2.1 million from the provincial government for granting programs, program delivery, operations and communications.
It also seeks support from the public and private sector.
It supports the following artistic disciplines: dance, film, multidiscipline, music, theatre, visual art and writing.
