British Columbia’s museums, galleries, Indigenous cultural centres, and heritage organizations are experiencing unprecedented hardship due to the COVID-19 shutdowns. In partnership with the BC Government, the BC Museums Association (BCMA) launched a Resilience Fund to offer small, one-time grants to organizations facing an immediate need for funds.

For more information about the BCMA Resilience Fund, download our press release.

 

Grant Applications are now closed.

 

Heritage Canada recently committed new relief funding for the arts and cultural sector – this funding will likely include additional relief funding for museums. While details about this fund have yet to be fully announced, we encourage museums to pay special attention for future announcements.

 

If you have not already, please consider filling out the sector Covid-19 impact survey which will help us advocate for additional support for BC museums.
