Introducing Showcase BC, a new relief program and online content hub. The Showcase BC program provides immediate support in the form of micro-grants to eligible emerging and established B.C. musicians who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded by the Province of British Columbia, this program will be administered by Creative BC and focuses on live-streaming, songwriting and professional development.
Online performances by recipients will be free and available to the public via the new hub that aggregates access to streaming events, showcasebc.ca, and through the hashtag #ShowcaseBC.
Creative BC will immediately offer grants to all previously eligible Amplify BC applicants, including those who applied for Amplify BC funds through Music BC and First Peoples’ Cultural Council programs, so artists can start creating at home.
Those from the interactive and digital media, motion picture, music and sound recording and publishing industries are welcome to submit their virtual events to Showcase BC to feature and promote their online event in the calendar.
