The Community Land-Based Arts Program is intended for Indigenous arts and culture organizations and/or unincorporated arts collectives in B.C. that have a demonstrated commitment to Indigenous arts development and practice.

The program is intended to support community land-based Indigenous arts and culture workspaces, as well as workshops focused on the transmission of arts skills and knowledge in all artistic disciplines. To support workspaces, the program will fund minor capital renovations and improvements, which will contribute to extending the useful life of an existing fixed asset. Projects must be initiated and directed by Indigenous artists, arts and culture organizations or established unincorporated Indigenous arts collectives.

Through the Community Land-Based Arts program, communities will have the opportunity to create shared art spaces, which will: 
  • increase accessibility for artists to practice art in their community 
  • facilitate new groups and collectives coming together
  • increase the capacity for arts organizations and collectives to serve their communities
  • increase training and participation of artists
  • support the transfer of artistic knowledge and skills between generations 
The Indigenous Arts Program assists Indigenous artists, arts professionals and arts organizations and collectives with projects that contribute to professional, artistic and creative development in all disciplines, and to the vitality of traditionally based art practices and related knowledge. This program is made possible through a partnership with the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation. 

For the purposes of this program, the term “Indigenous artists” refers to a person with Indigenous descent or heritage, and includes First Nations, Métis or Inuit practitioners of both traditionally based and/or contemporary/experimental art forms. Registered Indian Status is not required.
