The Province of B.C. has announced that the International Presence Program is now open for applications, with a deadline of 24 February 2020 at 4:00 pm.

Grants from this program are designed to increase the global understanding and appreciation of British Columbia’s arts, culture, creativity, and innovation.

Funding aims to develop relationships between B.C.’s arts and culture sector and its international counterparts under three main themes:

  • Arts promotion, representation, and exposure: projects that expose the participants to new markets and relationship-building opportunities or improve promotional capacity.
  • Incoming presenters and curators: projects that bring international presenters and curators to the province to increase their exposure to B.C. artists.
  • Artistic and cultural exchange: projects that are based in reciprocal, long-term relationships and result in cultural and artistic exchange, or unique collaborative or strategic opportunities.

You can find out more about the program, including application details and past recipients can be found on the B.C. Government website.
