How to Acknowledge Arts & Culture Funding
Congratulations on receiving a CRD arts and culture grant! Public recognition of the CRD Arts & Culture Support Service is a condition of acceptance of funding. Grant recipients are required to acknowledge CRD assistance in several ways. This is an essential part of promoting your work and informing residents of the role of public sector arts and culture funding.
Recognition at Events & Openings
You must acknowledge your grant verbally at any event you host which relates to an activity the CRD Arts & Culture Support Service has funded with support of the CRD Arts Commission. For example:
“We acknowledge the generous support of the CRD Arts & Culture Service.”
“We acknowledge the support of the CRD Arts Commission through the Arts & Culture Support Service . The participants are Saanich, Victoria, Oak Bay, Esquimalt, View Royal, Highlands, Metchosin, Sooke and Southern Gulf Islands."
Media and Public Relations
Acknowledge the CRD grant in any press coverage throughout the life of the funding, for example, in media releases, in newspaper interviews, on the radio, television and online coverage.
Mention the CRD Arts & Culture Support Service in social media posts. Tag @feedtheartsyyj on Twitter and @feedtheartsyyj on Facebook in promotion of CRD-funded initiatives and organizations. Use hashtags #crdarts and #yyjarts.
The CRD Arts & Culture Support Service will cross-promote most social media of funded organizations when the CRD Arts & Culture Support Service is tagged in promotions.
Wordmark / Logo
Please include the CRD wordmark (logo) on promotional materials for work related to the grant. Promotional materials include advertising, programs, posters and websites. The CRD logo is available in multiple file formats (jpg, eps, etc.) in colour, black or white on a transparent background.
Contact us for a current logo in the format best suited for your organization’s needs.
Maintain CRD brand colours and the size ratios of the logo as specified in the Acknowledgment Guide. Only include the second line ‘Making a difference...together’ if the wordmark is printed 2.5 cm (approximately 1 inch) wide or larger.
