The Sharing Traditional Arts Across Generations Program is intended for B.C. Indigenous arts organizations, collectives, First Nations communities, and artists who have a demonstrated commitment to their artistic practice in any traditionally based artistic discipline—visual, music, dance or story.

The program will assist with projects that have the transmission of traditional arts skills and knowledge as their primary focus. Projects will be initiated and directed by Indigenous artists, arts and culture organizations or established unincorporated arts collectives not otherwise eligible for existing BC Arts Council programs.

Sharing Traditional Arts Across Generations is meant to:
  • enhance traditional arts activities in all disciplines
  • increase training and participation of artists
  • advance the work of Indigenous artists practicing traditional art forms in all disciplines
  • support the transfer of artistic knowledge and skills between generations
  • enhance the network of artists practicing traditional art forms in all disciplines

Please note: For the purposes of this program, the term “Indigenous artists” includes Indigenous status, non-status, Métis and/or Inuit.
