First Peoples' Cultural Council
The First Peoples' Cultural Council (FPCC) is a First Nations-run Crown Corporation with a mandate to support the revitalization of Indigenous languages, arts, culture and heritage in British Columbia.
In partnership with Creative BC, FPCC developed the Indigenous Music Initiative, with a focus on increasing opportunities for Indigenous music industry professionals to participate in, and further influence, BC’s music industry through knowledge transfer, skill development and the creation of new business opportunities.
Two new grant streams were created:
- The Emerging Indigenous Music Industry Professionals Program is intended for Indigenous music industry professionals and artist-entrepreneurs living in B.C. who have a demonstrated commitment to working in the music industry as administrators, agents, promoters, managers, event organizers or presenters.
- The Expanding Capacity in the Indigenous Music Recording Industry Program is intended for emerging Indigenous recording engineers/producers and independent Indigenous recording studios who have demonstrated, active commitment to working within the B.C. music industry.
