History / Biographical
The Bulkley Valley Community Arts Council (BVCAC) is a Smithers-based organization which promotes awareness of, and access to, the arts for Bulkley Valley residents from Houston to Hazelton. Its work includes funding arts projects, providing bursaries to aspiring artists, and coordinating community events. Council membership includes local artists, musicians, vocalists, dancers, and community organizations. The BVCAC was officially incorporated under the Societies Act in March 1980, although its history dates back to at least the late 1960s.
Custodial History
Items were created and used by the Bulkley Valley Community Arts Council during the course of its day-to-day activities. They were retained as internal records until being transferred to the Bulkley Valley Museum on May 19th 2021.
Scope and Content
This fonds includes textual and graphic records, photographs, and electronic media created and used by the Bulkley Valley Community Arts Council during the fulfillment of its mandate. The majority of the material is textual or graphic in nature, including foundational documents (constitution, certificate of incorporation, by-laws), policies, reports, financial statements, meeting minutes, agenda books, grant and bursary applications, project proposals, cast lists, pamphlets, and posters. Also included are 36 photographs and two scrapbooks related to children’s concerts in the 1980s-1990s, and a DVD with two short demo videos produced by local filmmaker Taylor Fox in 2009.
Arrangement
This fonds has been arranged into five series, each reflecting a particular function of the BVCAC. Series 1 contains administrative material relating to the incorporation, governance, and management of the BVCAC. Series 2 contains applications for funding made by individual artists and community groups, whether directly to the BVCAC or to other organizations with the support of the BVCAC. Series 3 contains grant applications made by the BVCAC to outside organizations. Series 4 contains bursary applications to the BVCAC. Series 5 contains material related to events, projects, and programs put on by the BVCAC. This arrangement has been imposed by Bulkley Valley Museum staff, but original order has been adhered to as closely as possible.
