Vancouver Music Fund

The Vancouver Music Fund is a grant of $300,000 to support music and musicians working and living in Vancouver by addressing gaps, opportunities and embracing the city's vibrant and diverse music communities. 

The Vancouver Music Fund is the result of the work and strategic directions of the Vancouver Music Strategy and Culture|Shift, with shared commitments to position Vancouver as a thriving hub for music; advance reconciliation, equity and decolonization; champion creators; and support arts, culture, and community-led cultural infrastructure. The Vancouver Music Fund also supports the recommendations of the Vancouver Music Ecosystem Study

The City of Vancouver has partnered with Creative BC to deliver these funds to projects serving underrepresented populations within the City of Vancouver and the unceded traditional homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

The Vancouver Music Fund launched for the second time on March 3, 2021. Read the press release.
