BC Arts Council meeting records

  • GR-3544
  • Series
  • 1967-2009

The series consists of meeting agendas and minutes, correspondence, reports, budgets, texts of speeches, grant applications and presentations created between 1967 and 2004 by the British Columbia Arts Council and its predecessor the British Columbia Arts Board. The records document the Council’s programs and funding decisions. Records include the names of organizations that requested grant funding, how much was requested, how much was awarded, and reasons for the decision. The records cover several branches of the arts in British Columbia, including visual arts, dance, and theatre. Early records document the establishment of the British Columbia Arts Board, and include correspondence to and from Sam Bawlf regarding appointments to the Board. The series also consists of the welcoming remarks to the first meeting of the BC Arts Board in 1974. The series also consists of records pertaining to the Centennial Cultural Fund Advisory Committee. The fund was created by premier WAC Bennett and was the first permanent assistance to the province’s cultural activities. Under order-in-council 2784 (1967), interest earned upon the Fund was to be disbursed to arts organizations through local arts councils. In its first year, $190,000 was granted to arts organizations and councils. In 1972, an order-in-council shortened the name to the “British Columbia Cultural Fund.”

The records are arranged by meeting and are generally in chronological order. Meeting packages frequently include records from various Arts Council committees, including the Music Advisory Committee, Literary and Publishing Advisory Committee, the Arts Festivals Committee, the Media Arts Committee, and the Community Arts Advisory Committee. The records are covered by ORCS 80100-04 of schedule 143933 (Cultural Services).

The records cover three major sectors of heritage and culture : support for amateur and professional sports, heritage sites and museums, and arts and film.

Records in accession 91-9042 relate entirely to the BC motion picture industry and include the minutes of BC Film’s Board of Directors meetings. The series also includes an operations report, and lists film project titles, producers, film budget, and any financial contributions awarded to the project by external granting agencies. The series also consists of policy development records for the provincial motion picture industry.

The series also consists of financial statements, marketing plans and other records related to the BC Festival of the Arts and the BC Bilateral Culture Committee. Records address the BC Summer and Winter Games and the 1994 Commonwealth Games held in Victoria, while other records provide evidence of the government’s response to the Dubin report on anti-doping strategies elsewhere.

The series also documents the relationship between the provincial government and other provinces or federal initiatives, including the Federal Cultural Policy Review, Telefilm Canada, the Canada-Ontario Cultural Development Agreement and BC-ERDA cultural initiatives.
