The BC Arts Council supports the performing arts through an array of programs designed to support B.C. not-for-profit companies and professional organizations as they strive for artistic excellence and share their talent with audiences at home and around the world.
There are two kinds of funding programs: Operating, which provides annual grants to established organizations, and Project, which is a one-time grant for a specific production, performance, or creative process.
As well, the BC Arts Council has programs that encourage innovation, support regional initiatives, touring, training and sustainability.
Please carefully review the program guidelines before you apply to ensure eligibility.
