BC Artist Registry
Calling all BC artists! We invite all British Columbian adults who are artists in any discipline to be counted in the BC Artist Registry. Whether your arts practice is your full-time or part-time career, or your avocational pursuit, you may join the Registry through our simple online form. 
Across the province, arts champions in municipalities and local agencies express the need to learn more about artists in their communities, but lack the channels to connect with those individuals. The BC Artist Registry becomes an important tool for reaching artists directly, inviting their participation in surveys and other types of consultation.
The BC Artist Registry uses a simple online form recording an artist’s name, contact information, and field(s) of artistic discipline. Joining the Registry is free, and the personal information remains private and confidential. From time to time, artists on the Registry will be invited to participate in more detailed surveys or other consultations. The Registry will be open for ongoing registration with no deadline, to ensure a growing resource for meaningful statistics and research in our province’s cultural sector. 

SpaceFinder BC
SpaceFinder BC increases the visibility of creative workspaces throughout the province of British Columbia. Venues can market unbooked rental space by creating a listing and uploading a digital calendar, while artists and public alike can discover space based on location, price, amenities, and up-to-date availability. Built by nonprofit Fractured Atlas, SpaceFinder BC is free to list or search for space.
