VICTORIA,B.C. – The Provincial Government and Creative B.C. are supporting musicians impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with new grants for live streaming.

Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, shared music has the power to lift us and give us hope in times of crisis. Beare continues to say, B.C.’s music industry responded swiftly by embracing opportunities to live stream and bring people together online, and the government will support the efforts.

The B.C. government’s first step in supporting the music industry is partnering with Creative B.C. to launch Showcase B.C. The new online hub brings a variety of live performances, entertainment and content to British Columbians, so they can stay connected while staying home.
