We’re pleased to announce that the Project Assistance: Community Arts Festivals program is open for intake.

This program supports the artistic development of local, community-based arts festivals by providing funding for fees paid to B.C. or Canadian professional artists and technicians, and Elders or Traditional Knowledge Keepers engaged in the festival. The festival must be an existing festival, with an arts focus, presented by local Indigenous or community arts organizations.

This year the maximum request amount has been raised from $5,000 to $6,000.

Applications are being accepted until February 23, 2023.

You can find more information about the program, what can be funded, eligibility, and how to apply on the program page.

Applicants are encouraged to discuss eligibility and application requirements with a Program Advisor after reviewing the program guidelines.
