The BCMA would like to thank all those who have generously supported us in 2021.
Donations aid us in continuing to provide programs, grants, and resources that support the arts, culture & heritage sector in BC. We have received an overwhelming amount of support in 2021 which has allowed us to build initiatives such as the Gender and Sexuality Inclusion Toolkit, the BC Museum Portraits Project, and the Emergency Response and Recovery Fund. We could not have accomplished these initiatives without the support, involvement, and enthusiasm of our donors.
Check out these donor-funded projects!
Museums and cultural institutions tell the stories and preserve the histories of an area, aiming to be representative of the local region and foster a strong sense of community. How does gender and sexual orientation inclusion align with these goals?
The BC Heritage Emergency Response Network (BC HERN) and the BC Museums Association (BCMA) have partnered to create a new contingency fund that will allow skilled heritage emergency responders to mobilize and begin recovery and salvage efforts for museums, galleries, and cultural organizations across BC when emergencies strike.
