B.C. artist registry
Adult artists in all disciplines who reside in B.C. are invited to be counted in the online BC Artist Registry on allianceforarts.com/bc-artist-registry, whether their arts practice is their full-time or part-time career, or an avocational pursuit.
More than 1,000 artists have signed up for the new registry so far after its launch on Nov.4 by the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture.
Arts champions in municipalities and local agencies express the need to learn more about artists in their communities, but lack the channels to connect with those individuals. The BC Artist Registry becomes an important tool for reaching artists directly, inviting their participation in surveys and other types of consultation.
UNBC #1 out of 19 schools: Maclean’s
For the first time, UNBC is ranked No. 1 in the Primarily Undergraduate category that includes 19 universities, according to annual rankings released in Oct. 28 by Maclean’s magazine.
This year, Maclean’s added a student satisfaction survey, and strong support from UNBC students figured significantly in the outcome. UNBC students gave the University high marks in mental health services, extra-curricular activities and the quality of course instructors.
UNBC was placed second in 2014, 2012 and 2008.
