The BC Arts Council is accepting grant applications for its Youth Engagement Program until Jan. 15, 2016.

The program provides support to BC Arts Council funded arts and culture organizations taking innovative and inspiring approaches to youth programming.

Eligible projects will actively engage young British Columbians with professional arts and cultural organizations, providing youth with the opportunity to learn: Through exposure to professional artists and arts experiences; as participants in the artistic or creative process; or as the primary audiences for artistic work and programming

Funding assistance through this program will support both new projects and the enhancement or expansion of existing programming initiatives. Guidelines and program details, including eligibility, can be found at: www.bcartscouncil.ca

The BC Arts Council is the Government of British Columbia’s lead agency for arts funding and development. All BC Arts Council grants are awarded through a peer assessment process that relies on the knowledge and expertise of the province’s talented arts and culture community.

In 2015-16, the government is investing about $60 million in British Columbia’s artists, arts organizations and cultural institutions, including $24 million to the BC Arts Council.
