Federal government investing in Kingsbrae International Residence for the Arts

The federal government is investing in the Kingsbrae International Residence for the Arts (KIRA) in Saint Andrews. 

KIRA is receiving a $405,000 grant for renovations to its facilities. 

The organization recently completed work to build artists' studios through this funding, as well as renovations at the heritage residence, including an art gallery and artists' housing. 

Government says the final phase of the project will involve building an amphitheatre, a unique space for staging performing arts in a professional outdoor environment. 

The funding is being provided under the Canadian Heritage's Canada Cultural Spaces Fund.
