There are two kinds of funding programs: Operating, which provides annual grants to established organizations, and Project, which are one-time grants that target a specific performance, show, festival or project.

The BC Arts Council has programs that encourage innovation, support regional initiatives, touring, training and sustainability.

Please carefully review the program guidelines before you apply to ensure eligibility.
