Art vitality micro grants in Canada

The Art Vitality Micro-Grants Program in Canada 2022


Art is at the center of our ceremonies and cultural practices. Art is an educational tool, a public record, a political document, and a spiritual resource, and is a fundamental component of our cultural systems.

At the Cultural Council of Indigenous Peoples, we support indigenous artists working in traditional and contemporary arts through the provision of grants, workshops, and programs.

Indigenous arts in B.C. have a long and nuanced history, dating back to a time long before colonization. Music, dance, carving, weaving, clothing, body art – 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.
