Objectives:

Managed by ArtStarts in Schools, these grants bring professional artists into schools for rich learning experiences to:

  • increase opportunities for young people to engage in hands-on arts experiences with professional artists to facilitate deeper learning
  • increase opportunities for professional artists to further develop their artistic excellence and practices
  • increase opportunities for educators to integrate arts into their classrooms to inspire creativity and innovation.

Funding Eligibility: Artists, teachers, principals and PAC representatives can apply for Artists in the Classroom (AIC) grants to bring professional artists into the classrooms. Through AIC, artists and educators collaborate to expand the role of arts in education and activate learning for young people across BC and in the Columbia Basin region. AIC grants support projects in schools that demonstrate artistic excellence, strong curricular connections, high levels of student engagement and an active partnership between educators and professional artists. AIC projects are flexible to accommodate for COVID restrictions.

Please plan projects that are able to adapt to changing COVID rules in your region. For 2022/23, the AIC program in the Basin is funded by the Trust and through a partnership agreement with the BC Arts Council and Province of British Columbia.
