For BC Museums Week 2023, the BCMA wants to help tell the story of how museums change lives - and we need our members’ help. If you know a community member who is passionate about the impact of your museum and would like to share their story, we are offering ten $350 microgrants to help document the impact of museums.
Due to COVID-19, the BCMA was unable to deliver its regular regional workshops around the province in 2020 and used this opportunity to reallocate funding to support museum professionals with diverse experiences and ideas to create new online resources and programming.
The BCMA administered "British Columbia | Canada 150: Celebrating B.C. Communities and their Contributions to Canada" on behalf of the Province of British Columbia, with the support of Heritage BC. This one-time funding program invested $7.6 million in 221 projects in over 150 communities across British Columbia.
