Catalyst and Innovations

Story

When 2010 Legacies Now established the Catalyst and Innovations programs, we set a goal of investing close to $2 million through each of the programs to support arts and cultural projects throughout BC. In 2009, we reached that goal.

From 2004-2009, Catalyst funded 222 projects in 49 communities to assist arts, cultural and heritage organizations to improve their artistic and administrative capabilities. This funding was available through four streams: developing audiences and markets; consultancies; mentorships; and website development.

From 2005-2009, Innovations funded 195 projects in 61 communities. This funding supported arts organizations to create new projects to engage local residents in the arts.

While these two programs distributed their final grants in 2009, the projects they supported will continue to influence British Columbians for years to come.
