The delegate acts as a spokesperson for B.C. Culture Days and as a community mobilizer throughout the year leading up to the Culture Days weekend – Sept. 25 to 27.

The applicant must be a B.C. artist or cultural worker; be active in their arts, culture or heritage community; and register to present an activity in B.C. during the 2015 Culture Days weekend. Submissions will be juried by members of the B.C. Culture Days Task Force. The top entry will be awarded travel, accommodations and registration to the National Congress on Culture in Edmonton, May 7-8, and awarded a sum of $2,500 towards their proposed Culture Days event. In addition, up to 10 winning submissions will be awarded $1,000 each towards their proposed event.
