FPCC Is Looking For Your Feedback!

First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC), in partnership with the BC Arts Council, is reviewing FPCC’s Arts Programs.

Firelight Group has been contracted to do a series of community consultations, online surveys, and select interviews. The aim is to communicate directly with artists, arts groups and communities in order to hear from the people the programs are meant to serve. We would like to hear community perspectives about which art forms are thriving, which art practices need more support, and what challenges artists and arts face in different communities. We are also interested in ideas for how FPCC might address these issues.

Upcoming Consultations
Monday, August 29th – Prince Rupert
Monday, September 12th – Fort St. John


Indigenous artists and culture workers, collectives and organizations have the chance to speak directly to staff at the FPCC’s Arts Program through online surveys.  Complete the survey most relevant to your experience and perspective, by clicking on one of the links below:

1. Indigenous artists
2. Indigenous arts collectives and organizations
3. Indigenous Jurors who have adjudicated FPCC or BCAC applications

The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and will be open until August 31, 2016.  

For more regarding the surveys, please visit
FPCC's website.

NEW Reporting Requirements:

Reporting requirements for all Project Assistance and Individual Arts Awards programs have been revised. Effective June 30, 2016, applicants with overdue final reports will be ineligible to apply to BC Arts Council Project Assistance and Individual Arts Awards programs. Project Assistance or Individual Arts Awards submissions from applicants with overdue final reports will be disqualified before adjudication.
Final reports must be submitted within 30 days of project completion. End dates for BCAC funded projects currently in progress must be kept up to date to ensure eligibility for future grant competitions. Changes to project end dates should be requested prior to the original project end date.


NEW Enhanced Capacity:

Beginning in the fall of 2016, organizations receiving Operating Assistance will be able to apply for new Enhanced Capacity support, concurrent with their extended cycle intake application. This funding is intended to help organizations build capacity and respond to strategic priorities, challenges and opportunities and will offer enhanced support for operations for the duration of the funding cycle. This approach allows flexibility in response to organizations’ fluctuations in cycles of activity or capacity needs, while still providing stable, base operating support.
