Registration is now open for artsVest information sessions and sponsorship workshops in Kelowna and across Metro Vancouver.
artsVest™ B.C. is a sponsorship training and matching incentive program of Business for the Arts, with funding from Canadian Heritage and the Government of British Columbia, City of Kelowna, Columbia Basin Trust, Capital Regional District and TELUS.
In 2016 the program will continue to provide small and mid-sized organizations free sponsorship training and a total of $205,000 in matching incentive grants. Combined with sponsorships of equal or greater value from local businesses, this will translate to an influx of over $410,000 into BC’s creative economy this year alone.

Organizations who have participated in artsVest before are eligible to apply for 2016, however must attend one of the workshops.
