We carry out fund raising activities each year. Arts Exposed is a festive gala, held in the fall of the year. We are blessed by auction items donated by our supporting artists and the culinary creativity of our caterer, Grill on the Gull. Live theatre and performance are produced through a partnership with the Conjurors of Haliburton County.
Arts Alive Minden has raised $45,000 towards the Agnes Jamieson Gallery expansion and $15,000 towards the construction of R. D. Lawrence Place. The annual community grants program has contributed $30,031 to support local arts groups, artists, and the community to develop and celebrate arts and culture in Minden and area.
