I’m pleased to announce that the BC Arts Council is now accepting applications to the following grant program:

The BCAC Projects Assistance program for Museums and Indigenous Cultural Centres supports the development and creation of artistic, cultural and/or human cultural history programming, including exhibitions, dissemination projects, artists’ residencies, exploration of new museological and curatorial practices, community engagement projects and collections management projects.

Who can apply?
Museums and Indigenous Cultural Centres operating in BC that provide public programming, have a permanent collection and a definable physical space designated for public exhibition of collection material are eligible to apply (note:  organizations must meet the full eligibility criteria outlined in our guidelines).

Complete information about this program – including eligibility criteria – is found on our website:

I encourage eligible museums and Indigenous Cultural Centres to apply this year. Please feel free to phone me with your ideas and/or questions after you have reviewed the guidelines posted on our website.

All the best,

The BC Arts Council acknowledges it carries out its work on the traditional territories of Indigenous nations throughout British Columbia. We pay our respects to the Elders, past and present, descendants and custodians of these lands. We honour the knowledge keepers and the continuing relationships with Indigenous peoples in BC that develop through our work together. The BC Arts Council is grateful to the lək̓ʷəŋən (Songhees) and Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) ancestors and families, on whose traditional lands we operate our main offices.

We are committed to supporting B.C.’s artists and cultural organizations through the pandemic. Up-to-date information is available on the COVID-19 Information and Support page<https://www.bcartscouncil.ca/funding/covid-19-updates-and-faq/>.
