Small projects can have a big impact. Artists across all disciplines living and working in the Columbia Basin region who have an interest in working with young people in an arts-based capacity are invited to apply for Creative Spark Columbia Basin grants.

  • I’m an emerging artist looking to explore career opportunities

  • I have a project idea but don’t have the funds to cover the required materials and supplies
  • I am interested in applying for an Artists in the Classroom (AIC) grant in the future and need to build some experience first

Who Can Apply?

Artists living and working in BC’s Columbia Basin region are eligible to apply for this grant.

Grant Amount

Creative Spark Columbia Basin grants offer 100% coverage for projects up to $1,000.
