Now in its 14th year, BC Arts and Culture Week highlights the vital contribution that arts and culture make in learning and in life. Art, in one form or another—music, film, books, visual and media arts, theatre—is part of our daily lives. It helps bring communities together and makes them more vibrant, creative, and economically diverse.
This is an open call to join the celebration of BC's arts and culture! From artists and craft practitioners to curators and cultural programmers; from educators and their students to culturally diverse community groups; whether you live in a city, a suburb or a remote rural area of the province -- everyone is welcome!
Here's how to participate:
Nominate a BC Arts Champion - Deadline Friday, March 8
Three BC Arts Champion Awards will be given to an artist, administrator and youth making significant contributions to arts and culture in BC. The awards will be presented on April 22 at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver. Recipients will receive artwork commissioned by a BC artist as part of their awards.
