In support of the Cultural Olympiad, one of the three pillars of the Olympic and Paralympic movement, 2010 Legacies Now announced $12 million in funding would be available to BC's arts and culture sector. In December 2004, a portion of this investment went to creating three arts-related funding programs.

Catalyst supported efforts to improve artistic and organizational capacity, and develop audiences and markets. Innovations supported new and improved opportunities to engage British Columbians in the arts. And Creative Communities supported municipalities to incorporate arts and culture in their long-term economic and social plans.
