|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.
