The 2010 Sports and Arts Legacy is providing $30 million over three years to support special arts initiatives across B.C. Building on the success of the 2010 Games, the Legacy funds will help create new programs and support existing programs that celebrate our diverse arts and culture communities, provide development opportunities for emerging artists, support the creative sector and invest in innovation.
A significant portion of the Legacy will be managed and administered by the BC Arts Council.
