New media artists receive financial boost

If you're an independent new media artist looking for financial assistance, it turns out there is a grant for that.

On Thursday (May 8) the provincial government announced that the B.C Arts Council will be offering project assistance grants for up to $25,000 to anyone in the media arts sector.

According to the British Columbian government, media artists are defined as as anyone who works in film, video, audio or sound art and new media, including new information and communication technologies used for the purpose of artistic expression.

Applications can be made by individual new media artists or as a collaboration of two or more artists, who share creative control of a defined project.

The deadline for applications is June 2. To apply or for more information visit http://www.bcartscouncil.ca/guidelines/artists/mediaartists/mediaartist_proj_assist.htm
