Artists and cultural organizations, including community arts councils, will share $8.36 million in the latest round of BC Arts Council grants, Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Bill Bennett announced today.
The funding comes from $16.8 million provided by the BC government to the BC Arts Council for fiscal year 2012-13. Approved grants will provide essential operating support for local museums and art galleries, as well as media arts organizations in many British Columbia communities. Council enlists input from BC's arts community to evaluate grant applications through an independent peer review process.
