Today we say goodbye to this year’s Creative Industries Week, BC Creates Virtually: Growing Forward in 2021.

This year, the creative sector had an exciting opportunity to open up Creative Industries Week to the public for the first time. We saw leaders inspire, discovered emerging talent, learned the impacts of each industry, and were supported by unmatched energy from B.C., who took part and tuned in to five days of back-to-back programming. The creative industries collaborated to deliver 22 events, initiatives and offerings, showing us how we can continue to grow forward, together. Thank you for supporting Creative Industries Week!
