artsVest BC

The Provincial Government is investing $300,000 over two years in artsVest BC as part of the Creative Economy Strategy.

The artsVest program is designed to spark new business sponsorship of arts and culture through training workshops and matching incentive funds. Each matching dollar in the community generates an average of $3.75 in additional business sponsorship.

In March 2017, the artsVest program launched in five new regions: northwest B.C., Sunshine Coast, south-central Okanagan, Columbia-Shuswap and Alberni-Clayoquot.
