Indigenous Arts Grants (First Peoples’ Cultural Council)

“At the First Peoples’ Cultural Council, we support Indigenous artists working in both traditional and contemporary arts by delivering grants, workshops and programs. 

Indigenous arts in B.C. have a long and nuanced history, stretching back to a time well before colonization. Music, dance, carving, weaving, regalia, body art – these are just some of the artistic expressions that reflect our cultures and identities. Our art is a conduit for physical, mental, socio-cultural and economic well-being. 

We use art to record history and mark events, map the land, pass on values and identify political and family structures that shape our communities. Art is at the centre of our ceremonies and cultural practices. Art is an educational tool, a public record, a political document and a spiritual resource – and it is a critical component of our cultural systems. 

Choosing your Grant
The Indigenous Arts Program is organized into three funding Baskets to streamline grant selection for individuals, organizations and music industry professionals. Please see each Basket to find which grant fits best with your project.
