Who should participate – Registration is free
Priority for registration will be given to representatives from BC’s arts and cultural organizations living and working in the host region on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating is limited. Please note we currently accept on-line registrations only.
We highly encourage arts and cultural organizations to register a minimum of two representatives, preferably three people per organization. The Semesters are more likely to have a positive impact if more than one person from the organization attends.
The Sustainability Semesters are suitable for staff, board and volunteers from both professional and non-professional, not-for-profit arts and cultural organizations including but not limited to representatives from:
- Artist cooperatives
- Arts centres
- Arts councils including regional arts councils
- Arts presenters including festivals and concert societies
- Arts facility managers
- Arts service organizations
- First Nations arts and heritage organizations
- Francophone arts organizations
- Museum and galleries
- Heritage and literary organizations
- Performing arts groups
Please note that for the Vancouver Island Region, we no longer have any Travel/Accommodation Subsidies available (at March 10, 2012).
