The BC Artist Registry is a growing resource for meaningful statistics and research in our province’s cultural sector.

The Alliance invites artists from all disciplines to be counted in the BC Artist Registry. Whether your arts practice is your full-time or part-time career, or your avocational pursuit, you may join the Registry through a simple online form. Participation is free and open to all artists who are adults and residents of British Columbia.

The Registry helps to advance our province’s cultural sector through quality research and advocacy. Across the province, arts champions in municipalities and local agencies express the need to learn more about artists in their communities, but lack the channels to connect with those individuals. The Registry becomes an important tool for the Alliance to reach artists directly, to invite their participation in surveys and other types of consultation. 

The long term goal is to build on basic informational tools, such as the census, to better understand the situation of artists in British Columbia. Learn more at our blog post here

The Registry is not a directory and is not used for commercial purposes. The personal information collected is private and confidential and will not be published, rented, sold or shared with other parties except where authorized in writing or required by law (see Alliance Privacy Policy for details).

From time to time, those who have signed up will receive invitations to take part in surveys or consultations as well as updates on the status of the BC Artist Registry initiative.
