Incorporated as a city in 1862, the Capital City of British Columbia, the City of Victoria, is known for its natural beauty heritage charm. The juxtaposition of old world ambience and architecture in a small urban city is part of what makes Victoria one of the most uniquely special places in Canada. As the regional centre for arts and culture, the City of Victoria aims to enhance its neighbourhoods, foster arts and culture, and to work to create a city that is a natural draw for festivals and events.
The vibrant and eclectic arts and culture community in the City of Victoria includes a wide array of festivals and events that support artists, writers and musicians and other creative pursuits, through a variety of grants and programs.
The City of Victoria is proudly finalizing the development of Create Victoria, a five-year Arts and Culture Master Plan, which will layout the City’s strategy and approach to the creative industries and identify initiatives to increase arts and cultural opportunities.
