We are happy to report that the Ontario Arts Council has granted PeaceSong: Building Bridges a $10,000 grant (the full amount requested!!) for the second phase of our PeaceSong Project, “Building Bridges”.

PeaceSong: Building Bridges is a collaboration between PeaceQuest, singer-songwriter/community minister, The Rev. Wendy Luella Perkins and Kingston Community Health Centres.
