The 14th annual BC Arts and Culture Week, April 21-27, will offer British Columbians great opportunities to enjoy exciting arts events in communities throughout the province.

In 1999 the BC Arts Council initiated BC Arts and Culture Week to showcase and celebrate the arts in British Columbia. As the B.C. government’s key development and funding agency for the arts, the BC Arts Council supports arts and cultural organizations, as well as individual artists in every region of the province. With special funding from council, about 40 local arts councils are organizing events during BC Arts and Culture Week, highlighting the social, cultural and economic importance of the arts.

Works by more than 20,000 amazing B.C. artists will inspire BC Arts and Culture Week celebrations in communities large and small, urban and rural. Events include art crawls, public art projects, art exhibitions, arts festivals, concerts and First Nations celebrations.
