RBC Foundation is proud to support the Plug-In ICA’s Turn On campaign with a $50,000 gift.  A portion of this gift is being directed to the Emerging Artist Summer Institute Program.

Our support through to Plug In ICA’s Summer Institute program is pillared on long-term partnerships with organizations whose programs bridge the gap from academic excellence to professional careers in all aspects of the arts.
Emerging artists is a priority area for RBC and through the RBC Emerging Artist Project, we invested more than $1.4 million in apprenticeship and internship programs across Canada in 2010.
