The BC Arts Council is accepting applications from arts and culture organizations for two funding programs with deadlines in January.

The Youth Engagement Program provides support for organizations taking innovative and inspiring approaches that engage British Columbia’s young people in arts and culture. The application deadline is Monday, Jan. 16, 2017.

Project Assistance for Community Arts Festivals supports community-based arts and cultural organizations in B.C. that produce local arts festivals. These awards assist with fees for professional artists and technicians engaged for the festival. Priority will be given to festivals that feature British Columbian and Canadian artists. The application deadline is Monday, Jan. 30, 2017.

The Government of British Columbia is investing approximately $60 million in arts and culture again in 2016-17 to further support a thriving creative economy. Supported within this funding, the BC Arts Council is providing $24 million to help artists and cultural organizations flourish in more than 200 communities throughout the province. The BC Arts Council draws upon the expertise of British Columbia’s arts and culture community to provide an independent peer-review adjudication process.


  1. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  2. Since then, the design of locks has advanced and incorporated new materials, such as steel, plastic, and other synthetic materials.
    That is absolutely true, since you will be able to improve in each aspect.
    A locksmith Apache service provider will be able to help you install a wide variety
    of locks and security devices that can improve the security of
    your house.

  3. You’ve made some decent points there. I looked on the net for additional information about the issue and
    found most people will go along with your views on this web site.

  4. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
