This program provides funding to enable artists and performers to take advantage of unexpected opportunities where artists would not be able to otherwise participate.
For example, funding through this grant can be used to support an art show, travel or regalia for a performance. The grant allows artists and collectives to respond to new approaches, reduces barriers to opportunities and advances the artist’s skills, knowledge and professional development.
Eligible applicants have completed basic training in their field, demonstrated their commitment to their art form and be working to develop their activities to a professional skill level. Applicants from any artistic disciplines are encouraged to apply.
This funding is for Indigenous artists or collectives, 19 years of age or older, working in any artistic discipline, who have been a resident of B.C. for at least the past year.
