No money for BC Arts Council in Provincial Budget

From the Alliance for the Arts Synergy newsletter

Despite a recommendation from the Provincial Standing Committee on Finance “for a significant increase to the core funding provided to the BC Arts Council to support arts and culture in BC leading up to the Olympic Games,” the provincial budget released on February 20th offered no new investment for the sector.

The Alliance for Arts and Culture, in conjunction with Arts Future BC, will continue to work to encourage Minister Stan Hagen to take action to secure increased core investment in the BC Arts Council, fostering growth diversity and sustainability, values we share with the provincial government.
