The new BC Arts Council Accelerate Program will increase access and remove barriers to funding for equity-deserving arts and cultural organizations to benefit more people working in B.C.’s arts sector.
The two-year pilot program will offer multi-year, flexible funding of up to $30,000 per year to eligible equity-deserving arts and culture organizations and collectives for expenses related to artistic growth, development, production or exhibition as well as for costs related to organizational capacity building, expansion and operations.
Accelerate will open for intake on September 21, 2022.
Accelerate program builds on the priorities of Extending Foundations: Action Plan 2022-2024 to improve access, reduce barriers and provide flexible support for capacity building.
Guidelines, application previews and details about the program will be available in the coming weeks.
