The BC Arts Council’s Community Arts Festivals grants are offered to non-profit community-based arts and cultural organizations involved in the production of local arts and culture festivals. Eligible festivals must be more than one day in duration. Grants of up to $6,000 are available to offset the costs paid to professional artists and technicians from throughout B.C. and Canada. Submissions for Community Arts Festivals grants must be post-marked no later than Jan. 30, 2019.

The BC Arts Council’s Youth Engagement Program provides grants to eligible arts and cultural organizations in order to engage young British Columbians in the arts. Funding is intended to support the development and delivery of programs that give youth opportunities to take part in arts and culture as participants, makers and audiences. Submissions for the Youth Engagement Program must be post-marked no later than Jan. 15, 2019.

First Nations band councils and Indigenous friendship centres are eligible to apply to both programs.
