British Columbia Arts Council (BCAC)
Grants for operating support are available to British Columbia, Canada non-profit museums that have a permanent collection and exhibits which are open to the public. New applicants should confirm eligibility at least six weeks before the deadline. Eligible applicants must have been operating for at least two years and have regular artistic and curator programs involving creation, development, presentation, collections and dissemination activities.
All artists and practitioners strive for excellence in their work. The assessment of artistic excellence is central to the evaluation of requests for funding. The fact that everyone experiences artistic work in his/her own way makes the assessment of artistic quality difficult to discuss.
The Council’s approach is to consider three dimensions of artistic work:
1. Idea – the intention or artistic impetus behind the work.
2. Practice – the effectiveness of how the work is put into practice and the impact it has on those experiencing it.
3. Development – the contribution the work makes to the development of the artist, the art form and the arts more widely.
