First Time Visitors

Welcome to the BC Arts Council website. We hope you will find it user-friendly and easy to navigate.

Artists and representatives from arts organizations visiting the site for the first time often have one big question in mind: how do I apply for funding?

There are shortcuts to the applications, but we suggest first time applicants take their time, familiarize themselves with the programs, and ensure they are eligible before they fill out an application. Before you apply, you should:

  • Use the top navigation to find your discipline.
  • Review the guidelines.
  • Before you decide to apply for the first time, it’s a good idea to talk to the relevant Program Officer.
