• Alliance for Arts and Culture (BC)
The Arts and Culture Industry in BC generates more than 80,000 jobs and $5.2 billion annually. Less than .05% of the BC budget is invested in the Arts.
An investment in the Arts is an investment in our communities. Ask your elected official to reinstate the 40% cut to our BC Arts Council. Because artists have families too.
Alliance for Arts and Culture (BC) was founded in 1986, the Alliance for Arts & Culture represents over 350 member organizations from across the artistic disciplines.
They advocate for our sector by monitoring public policy, synthesizing issues for members, and representing the interests of artists. They also offer a range of services that allow artists to publicize their events, network, and access affordable and relevant professional development opportunities. Visit their website for more information, resources, advocacy, membership, artist job postings and artist calls.
