Aspiring & Emerging Artists Touring & Training Initiative The BC Touring Council (BCTC), in partnership with the BC Arts Council, presents the Aspiring & Emerging Artists Touring & Training Initiative. The goal of this program is to offer opportunities for young, aspiring and emerging artists to engage in professional performing arts touring and presenting in BC.
BCTC will deliver three projects as part of the initiative. Warming Up the Act is a funding program for BC presenters. Funding will allow presenters to hire aspiring and emerging artists to open for main stage artists/acts presented as part of their series or season. For the second project, BCTC will develop and document a multi-media inventory of performing arts venues appropriate for youth and young audiences. The third project is the presentation of two x two-day workshops in Kelowna and Metro Vancouver for aspiring and emerging artists/companies wanting to learn about touring, presenting and performing in BC.
