      • Applicants must be an arts and cultural organization registered and in good standing as a non-profit society in the province of British Columbia.
      • Applicants from organizations that have received an Arts and Culture Event grant in aid previously must demonstrate that the current project is different from the activity which received the previous grant in aid.
