Regarding Harcourt House Artist Run Centre
Thank you to everyone who expressed concern and support for Harcourt House Artist Run Centre, our hearts are full of gratitude and appreciation at the support being conveyed.
Recently, Hon. Nicholas Milliken, Minister of Alberta Infrastructure, has granted the W.E.C.A.N. Society/Harcourt House Artist Run Centre a one-year extension to our lease, which will give us until November 30, 2023, to accomplish our fundraising goal and make our home permanent and stable.
Please help us spread the word that fundraising has begun to help us secure ownership of our home at Harcourt House and direct people to our GoFundMe Fundraiser.
Once again, we at Harcourt House are extremely grateful for the amazing support you have offered during the recent challenges and we look forward to your continued assistance as we start the fundraising campaign to secure ownership of the facility.
With respect and profound thanks,
The Board and Management of W.E.C.A.N. Society/Harcourt House Artist Run Centre
