YVR Art Foundation acknowledges that its offices are located on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. The Foundation’s work and outreach spans the territories of many Nations throughout what is now known as British Columbia and the Yukon, and our programs exist for the purpose of supporting BC and Yukon First Nations artists with grants, awards, exhibitions and research opportunities. We honour with gratitude the Nations who have cared for the lands on which we work, reside and visit, and who have stewarded them since time immemorial.
