Burnaby’s Community Arts Development Program continues to flourish thanks to the initiatives of our community.
If you have ideas for an arts engagement project that brings the community together, we encourage you to bring them forward. If the initiative meets the Community Arts Program criteria, it’s possible the project could be supported in ways such as: partial funding, planning advice, artistic process, resource information and/or recommendation of artists.
