New Creation in the Arts Awards Announced

By Christa Lochead

In May, the Imperial Tobacco Canada Foundation (ITCF) announced the winners of their inaugural New Creation in the Arts Awards. La La La Human Steps, O Vertigo Danse Inc., and artists representing the CanAsian Dance Festival, along with seven other visual and performing arts groups, received $50,000 each to be directed toward new creations. Established in 2005, the ITCF is a private charitable foundation funded solely by Montreal-based Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited. These awards, along with a larger Arts Achievement Award, replace the Arts Council and Arts Fund Awards previously offered by the foundation, which had allowed organizations to apply for various types of support.
