Two New Programs Announced
On December 3rd, Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Coralee Oakes announced the launch of two new BC Arts Council programs through the BC Creative Futures strategy. Announced last January, BC Creative Futures supports opportunities for youth in communities throughout British Columbia to engage in the arts and creative thinking and encourages young people to pursue creative careers.
“The BC Arts Council is proud to provide these programs which will help our impressive artists and organizations play a key role in inspiring the next generation,” said BC Arts Council Chair Stan Hamilton.
Creative Youth Initiatives is a suite of programs developed and delivered by the BC Arts Council and its long-standing partners, the BC Touring Council and the First Peoples’ Cultural Council. Creative Youth Initiatives will provide $2 million to enable arts and culture organizations to enhance opportunities for youth to experience professional arts and work directly with artists through collaborative projects in their communities. The BC Arts Council is also launching the Early Career Development Program, which will help young career professionals get work experience and valuable professional development in the arts.
