FPCC arts funding now available!

September 18, 2017
We are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for funding through the 2017 Aboriginal Arts Development Awards (AADA) and Aboriginal Youth Engaged in the Arts (AYEA) programs. The programs are open to Aboriginal artists, groups and communities in B.C.

AADA and AYEA funding supports First Nations and Aboriginal arts through five programs: Individual Emerging Artists, Organizations and Collectives, Sharing Traditional Arts Across Generations, Organizations and Groups, and Arts Administrator Internships and Mentorships.

Applicants must have a demonstrated commitment to their practice in any discipline – visual, music, dance, theatre, literary or media arts – and can work in traditional or experimental forms.

The deadline for all programs is October 31, 2017.

Each year a Peer Adjudication Committee selects recipients from the many deserving proposals through a rigorous review process. In 2017 over 74 grants were awarded totaling over $971,000.

For more information about the recipients of the 2017 AADA and AYEA grants, and to download current applications and funding information, visit: www.fpcc.ca/arts/programs.
