Deadline for applying is June 30, 2013. The Community Presenters Assistance is a program of the British Columbia Arts Council and is administered by the BC Touring Council.
Objective of Community Presenters Assistance
Awards are available on a project basis to assist non-profit community organizations that present British Columbian and Canadian professional performing arts touring events that occur between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014. There are THREE presenting components of the program. Presenters may apply as a Community or Key Presenter (if they qualify) as well as a Diverse Collaborations Presenter.

We ask that you also email a copy of the Application Form and Final Report so that the data can be easily and accurately extracted.
