Wildfire Recovery Support Program - BCEDA & Nations Creations Partnership
The British Columbia Economic Development Association (BCEDA), and Nations Creations, a social enterprise in Chilliwack, owned by the Stó:lō Nation, today announced an exciting new partnership to assist BC communities impacted by wildfires of 2017.
Nations Creations has launched a new series of work featuring four original works of art, designed by Indigenous Artists. This series, all designed to provoke wildfire awareness, will be for sale on shirts, limited edition prints and other collectibles items. A large portion of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork will go towards a special fund to support community-based economic development initiatives in those communities impacted by the wildfires. An official application process will be developed once enough product has been sold to allow for distribution to as many community groups as possible.
