Update 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.
We recently received a letter from Hon. Pete Guthrie, Minister of Alberta Infrastructure. The Minister approved a one-year extension of the Lease Agreement and Purchase and Sale Agreement to November 30, 2024, for the Harcourt House Main and Annex Buildings.
Please help us spread the word that we continue fundraising 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 our fundraising campaign continues.
With respect and profound thanks,
The Board and Management of W.E.C.A.N. Society/Harcourt House Artist Run Centre
